-- "Before," is written and directed by Irish writer/performer Pat Kinevane and the team that previously brought Forgotten, Underneath
and the Olivier Award-winning Silent
to the Odyssey Theatre. They return with their newest work: a new play with much music, influenced by the golden era of Hollywood musicals. Inside Clery's of Dublin, on the very day this iconic department store shuts for good, Pontius is trying to choose a gift for his estranged daughter, whom he hasn't seen for almost 20 years. He will meet her in an hour. This father's journey is both beautiful and strange, from the isolation of his Midlands home, to the madness of O'Connell Street. Some folk are impossible to buy for…Directed by Jim Culleton; Music composed by Denis Clohessy and recorded by the RTE Concert Orchestra; choreographed by Emma O' Kane.
Performances of Before
take place Nov. 14 through Dec. 8. The Odyssey Theatre is located at 2055 S. Sepulveda Blvd., in West L.A. To purchase tickets and for more information, call (310) 477-2055 or go to www.OdysseyTheatre.com
