Start off your St. Patrick’s eve the right way — with Irish play, The Cure by Conal Creedon . It’s premiering tonight and is brought to you by Irishtown Productions in association with Le Ceile and the Shanghai Repertory Theatre. The Cure is inspired by the ancient Celtic bardic style of story-telling but with a narrative that is contemporary and cutting edge. Set during the height of the Celtic Tiger economic boom in Ireland – The Cure tells the bittersweet tale of a man who has emotionally lost his way. Brushed aside by the insanity of a booming economy, cut adrift from the city where he and his family have lived for generations.
