Seating chart & directions
Manhattan Theatre Club is pleased to announce a new production of Brian Friel’s Translations that will be directed by Tony Award winner Garry Hynes (Beauty Queen of Leenane;Druid/Synge). In 1981, MTC produced the American premiere of Brian Friel's masterpiece Translations.
Twenty-five years later, the themes of this play are as timely as ever. Clashing cultures and tragedies of miscommunication unfold in Friel's invented Irish county of Ballybeg, a place he has explored in his plays Dancing at Lughnasa, Aristocrats and Molly Sweeney. Poignant and moving, Translations depicts the power of language to unite and divide people in a time of cultural imperialism.
May be inappropriate for 12 and under. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
