All Saints in the Old Colony

By Julianne Homokay

January 5 – January 28, 2017

Playhouse on the Square is proud to present the world premiere production of All Saints in the Old Colony. After emigrating to South Boston from Ireland, Kiernan’s family fell apart following the birth of his baby sister. Kiernan sacrificed his own life to raise his three younger brothers and give them a shot at a life outside the Old Colony projects, yet somehow, the brothers are not all that grateful. The reasons why come out when an estranged brother returns home to stage an intervention on Kiernan. All Saints in the Old Colony is a winner of the 2016 NewWorks@TheWorks Playwriting competition.

This small ensemble is made up of Greg Boller (Lord of the Flies; Best of Enemies), John Maness (Shakespeare in LoveThe Flick), Erin Shelton (Best of Enemies; God of Carnage), and Marques Brown making his Playhouse on the Square debut. All Saints in the Old Colony is directed by Jeff Posson.

All Saints in the Old Colony runs January 5 – January 28 at TheatreWorks. The Playhouse on the Square Super Sponsor is Dr. Thomas Ratliff. All Saints in the Old Colony is sponsored by The Jeniam Foundation. The Pay-What-You-Can Performances ArtsFirst/First Tennessee Foundation and Southland Park Gaming and Racing. TheatreWorks is located at 2058 Monroe Ave. For more information or to make reservations, please call (901) 726-4656 or purchase tickets online at playhouseonthesquare.org.
