From the author of Doubt, this Tony Award nominee for Best Play is a romantic comedy set in Ireland. Anthony Rielly and Rosemary Muldoon have grown up next to each other on two farms in rural Ireland. Rosemary fell in love with Anthony at the age of six and is convinced that he will eventually come to her. Anthony had his heart broken as a young man, and hasn’t dared open it to another woman since. Decades later, the two of them are still living next to each other, instead of together. With a small land feud occurring between the two families, it seems unlikely that a romance will ever happen. Full of dark humor and poetic prose, John Patrick Shanley's tenderhearted portrait reminds us it's never too late to take a chance on love. 

Starring Patrick Harris as Anthony, Erin McCormick as Rosemary, Leanne Nickon as Aoife and Michael McFarland as Tony.

Tim Firth’s comedy is based on the true story of eleven Women’s Institute (WI) members who posed nude for a calendar to raise money for the Leukemia Research Fund. When Annie’s husband dies of leukemia, she and her best friend Chris resolve to raise money for a new settee in the local hospital waiting room. They manage to persuade four fellow WI members to pose nude with them for an “alternative” calendar. The calendar is a success, and all involved find themselves examining their lives through the lens of their newfound fame.
