About this show

A legit repertory troupe comes to a small village in Ireland and, after a week or so of Ibsen, Chekhov and Strindberg the town is off its nut. That, in a nutshell, is the story of Is Life Worth Living?--a gloriously goofy comedy that imagines the impact a steady diet of serious drama might have on the amiable residents of the seaside town of Inish. The fun begins when the town elders decide to improve the tone of the place. Enter Hector De La Mare and his wife Constance Constantia of the De La Mare Repertory company--committed exclusively to "psychological and introspective drama: the great plays of Russia, an Ibsen or two, a little Strindberg."
