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.

With a commitment to presenting literary, dramatic and musical works of Ireland in the Principality, the Monaco-Ireland Arts Society was founded in October 1994, by the late Paul Connell and Virgina Connell, Nick O’Conor and Professor George Sandulescu, thanks to the generosity and support of Dr Michael W Smurfit, the Irish Consul in the Principality.
