About this show

Tom Murphy directs his haunting tour-de-force Bailegangaire (The Town Without Laughter.) Night after night the senile old Mommo tells and retells an enigmatic yarn about a laughing competition without ever reaching the tale's end. Her granddaughter Mary determines that the only way for their family to escape the stranglehold of the past is for the story of Bailegangaire to be concluded - tonight.
