CT Irish Theater Troupe 

Lay Me Down Softly

Two Performances Only

Saturday July 28 @ 7.30 and Sunday July 29 @ 3pm

The Connecticut Irish Theater Troupe in conjunction with the Irish Cultural and Sports Association presents their annual spring play "Lay Me Down Softly" written by Billy Roche and directed by Karl Ryan.

Early 1960s: Delaney’s Traveling Roadshow tours the Irish countryside with bumper cars, bearded ladies, rifle ranges and the main attraction: the boxing ring. The Roadshow invites all comers to fight them to win a prize. Theo, the iron fisted patriarch, struggles to keep his crew in line and when his long abandoned daughter arrives, the patchwork family is thrown against the ropes, the gloves come off and the boys in the boxing tent come out swinging.”

Performances will be held on July 28th at 7:30pm and July 29th at 3pm at the Whitneyville Cultural Commons located at 1253 Whitney Ave in Hamden.
