Celebrate St. Patrick's Day weekend with "For Love," currently in previews at Irish Repertory Theatre (132 West 22nd Street), prior to its official opening night Tuesday, March 19. Meet the cast below!
In Laoisa Sexton's dark blue romantic comedy, FOR LOVE, Ireland is experiencing one of the greatest economic downturns in its history, the great recession, and three women in Dublin, are throwing down their handbags and looking for love, no matter what it costs.
FOR LOVE takes theatergoers on a relentless ride, a romp through the urban sexual experiences of three women in modern day central Dublin. Is there more than a one night stand in Val's future? Can Tina find the right dress if she's got the wrong man? Should Bee hop into bed with a married man or just go to the zoo? Or is there something else out there?
Witness what it means to be single to three Irish women, what they will put themselves through and what they will or won't do -- FOR LOVE.
Off-Broadway performances of FOR LOVE, directed by Tim Ruddy, run through April 5 at The Irish Repertory Theatre Company's W.
