John Millington Synge's Riders to the Sea spins a powerful tale of a peasant family struggling with loneliness and loss on a desolate island off the west coast of Ireland. As a mother sends her youngest son on a trip to sell the family horses, she has an eerie vision of his older brother who has been missing at sea. This classic play will be presented with a rare staging of William Butler Yeats' The Dreaming of the Bones. In this mystical verse drama, an Irish revolutionary fleeing arrest meets two restless ghosts who guide him to a safe haven while telling him their haunting story through traditional Celtic music and dance.
