April 22-24 and 29-30, 8 pm Foolish Bison will be performing Conor McPherson's This Lime Tree Bower at Kerouac; $7 admission. Here's an excerpt from a preview from CurtainUp.com:
"Suffice it to say, no actor will ever lose weight performing in any of these plays. McPherson's plays are not about action; they are about words: words woven together into stories. This Lime Tree Bower is, more than anything else, a study in the great art of storytelling, Irish-style.I'll remind you as the day approaches, but make a note to catch it. I'm sure it won't disappoint. I'll be trying to catch opening night and will give you my opinion of it here.
Put three young American men together for an afternoon. They'll find a basketball and take turns putting their best spin on it, aiming to prove they're the best shot. But give three similarly-situated Irishmen an afternoon off, and they'll sit around spinning yarns. Or so it seems."
