JAN 10–26, 2020


By Steven Dietz
Directed by Elena Giannetti

Robert returns to Dublin to reunite with Cait, the woman who captured his heart during a James Joyce literary tour thirty-five years ago. Dancing backwards through time, the older couple retrace their steps to discover their younger selves. Through young Robbie and Caithleen, they relive the unlikely, inevitable events which brought them—only briefly—together. This Irish-centric love story blends wit, humor, and heartache into a buoyant, moving appeal for making the most of the present before it is past.

This area premiere by one of America’s most prolific and widely produced playwrights is a lyrical romance that bends time and space to explore a love affair that might have been.
