Welcome to the show!

"The home, the house, the living-quarters of Commandant Frank Butler..." With these words Brian Friel begins his timeless Irish family drama, Living Quarters. As of this past Friday Strangeloop's production of Living Quarters is half-way through the rehearsal process. On January 29th the cast completed its first run-through (aptly called a "stumble-through") of the play. With only two weeks of rehearsal under their belts the actors have the play on its feet.

With just two weeks before we load into the Trap Door Theatre, the actors are working hard, taking risks, and spending the time and dedication needed to create a truly wonderful piece of theatre. We have included some of the pictures from the stumble-through so that you may get a glimpse of the work in progress.

Brought together under the tireless direction of Thomas Murray, Strangeloop Theatre's second full production is sure to be a hit. Thomas has extensively researched the production and the culture (go so far as to travel to Donnegal itself!) to create a truly rich theatrical experience.

Tickets for the production are already available online on Strangeloop Theatre's website. Be sure to buy your's today! This is one show you simply do not want to miss.
