In RIDERS TO THE SEA, J.M. Synge tells the story of a household grieving over the loss of five sons, all of whom have drowned. As the sixth and final son prepares to ride to the sea, Maurya, his mother, prophesies that he will die as well. This gripping and poignant short drama is considered one of the finest one-acts ever written. (2M, 3W)

IN THE SHADOW OF THE GLEN, a lovely lyrical comedy, finds a tramp knocking on the door of Nora and Dan Burke. After being invited in for food and shelter he is shocked to discover Dan lying dead in the corner. Or is he? (3M, 1W)
