Come and join me as we rediscover one of the greatest myths to come out of the Emerald Isle: "Deirdre of the Sorrows," adapted for the stage by J.M. Synge.Deirdre, a woman of immeasurable beauty, is betrothed/condemned to the King of Ulster, Conchubar. But in true mythological fashion, there is a prophecy which prevents this--a prophecy that tells of her falling in love with another man, of heroes being banished in her name, of multiple wars waged for her honor. Loyalty, familial ties, and unadulterated love will be strained and broken, with only one question remaining: Who will be left to admire the beauty and sorrow of life?
