In an annual event marking St Patrick’s Day but avoiding the host of other happenings on March 17, the Monaco-Ireland Arts Society will be celebrating one of Ireland’s foremost playwrights one week later, on March 24, with two plays by Brian Friel: The Bear and Faith Healer. Brian Friel (1929-2015) is perhaps best known for his work “Philadelphia, Here I Come”.
The evening performance, as presented by Frank Dubuisson and directed by Virginia Disney, starts at 8:30 pm will be in the Auditorium of the College Charles III, avenue de l’Annonciade (Parking is available under the old Lycée Technique). More information: www.monaco-ireland-arts.org.
