A Touch of the Poet

A Touch of the Poet

Irish Repertory Theatre continues its Off-Broadway season with A Touch of the Poet, written by Eugene O'Neill and directed by Ciarán O’Reilly.

About A Touch of the Poet:

In A Touch of the Poet, proud and tempestuous Cornelius Melody (Con) owns a run-down inn and tavern near Boston in 1828. Laden with debt, Con clings to his tenuous identity as a landed gentleman and war hero and chastises his wife and daughter for actions that expose the family’s humble Irish origins. When his daughter Mary falls in love with a wealthy American guest at their inn, Con’s pride drives him to an explosive reckoning with his true place in the New World.
