Newton North Theatre Ink Presents Translations-Feb. 7, 8, 9, 10

How important is language? We take it for granted, but for some the ability to speak the language we know and love is not always an option. Brian Friel’s drama Translations strikes at the heart of this concern as he looks back on 1833 Ireland and the decisions the Irish were forced to make under British Imperial rule. His characters are as real as they are timeless; their stories of struggling to survive in an oppressed state teach the true power and price of resistance. Directed by Mr. Tim Finnegan. February 6, 7, 8, and 9, at 7:30pm in The Little Theatre, Newton North High School, 457 Walnut Street, Newtonville, MA 02460. Tickets $7.00.
