Inis Nua Theatre Company Partners With Drexel for Revival of ‘Dublin by Lamplight’
In 1904 Dublin poverty and political unrest grip a city struggling for independence just as the Irish National Theatre of Ireland is taking off. In Drexel University’s Co-Op Theater Company production of “Dublin by Lamplight” 40 different characters, represented by a cast of six, cycle through many narratives: Will the King of England be assassinated? Will the laundry girl get her big break? Will the show go on? The show, which is co-produced by Inis Nua Theatre Company, will open in November at Mandell Theater as part of Drexel’s Mandell Professional in Residence Project.
