The Gaelic Park Players fall production is  BLOOMSDAY by Steven Dietz. The play will be directed by Gail Lauryn who has directed several productions for the Gaelic Park Players.Hailed by WTTW Theatre Critic, Hedy Weiss, as hauntingly beautiful, “…a breathtaking play about time, love, regret and fateful decisions, Bloomsday is a nostalgic look at what would happen if you could go back in time to talk to your younger self. The story is about Robert and Cait:

Robert returns to Dublin to reunite with Cait, the woman who captured his heart during a James Joyce literary tour thirty-five years ago. Dancing backwards through time, the older couple retraces their steps to discover their younger selves. Through youthful Robbie and Caithleen, they relive the unlikely, inevitable events that brought them-–only briefly--together. This time-traveling love story blends wit, humor, and heartache into a buoyant, moving appeal for making the most of the present before it becomes the past.
Production dates for the show at Gaelic Park are: November 5, 6 and 7, November 12, 13 and 14 and November 19, 20 and 21.
