  • 8:00 PM - 10:30 PM
  • Paramount Theatre, Reception at Randall Lobby of the Paramount Theatre

We are delighted that one of Ireland's foremost theatre companies, Druid Theatre, is bringing Martin McDonagh's Tony Award-winning play, The Beauty Queen of Leenane, to Boston next month. The play will be performed at the Paramount Theatre from February 8 to 26.

To mark the occasion, the Irish Consulate is partnering with Irish Network Boston to host an evening of Irish culture on Friday February 10.

The evening will begin with a 30-minute lecture by the National Library of Ireland entitled: "From Yeats to Heaney: Discovering 140 years of literature at the National Library of Ireland".

The lecture will be followed by a reception in the Randall Lobby of the Paramount Theatre, at which Druid Theatre Director, Garry Hynes, will speak. The performance begins at 8pm. ArtsEmerson is offering friends of the Consulate and Irish Network members a 20% reduction in tickets for the Beauty Queen of Leenane by using the promotion code Ireland20 when booking at artsemerson.org. A limited number of tickets priced as low as $16 are available.

Please see the above invitation with further details and we request that you RSVP for the lecture and reception by January 27.

We hope to see you there,
Best wishes, Fionnuala Quinlan
Consul General, Consulate General of Ireland
