The Irish Repertory Theatre's production of Kelly Younger's Banished Children of Eve opened on Sunday, October 24. Ciarán O'Reilly has directed the production.

The play, adapted from Peter Quinn's bestselling novel, centers on a diverse array of New Yorkers, including minstrel performers and Tammany Hall bosses, through a few days in the summer of 1863 when the Civil War had just entered its third bloody year.

The cast features Malcolm Gets, David Lansbury, Christopher Borger, Rory Duffy, Amber Gray, Patrice Johnson, Graeme Malcolm, Kern McFadden, Jonny Orsini, and Amanda Quaid.

Also in attendance for the opening were Irish Rep's artistic director Charlotte Moore, actor George S. Irving, and author Ken Emerson.
