Corktown ‘57

Odyssey Theater

2055 S. Sepulveda Blvd, Los Angeles, 90025

8:00pm to 2:00pm

An Irish-American family is ripped apart by divided loyalties in this powerful new drama. Emotions run high and battle lines are drawn when family and political allegiances collide in the Philadelphia community known as “Corktown,” a hotbed of pro-Irish activity that reached its climax in the late 1950s — a time when Irish Republican Army splinter groups had begun to advocate violence against civilian targets as a strategy to drive Britain out of Ireland. March 28 – May 3; Odyssey Theatre, 2055 S. Sepulveda Blvd., Los Angeles CA 90025; $25-$30; (323) 960-5770 or www.plays411.com/corktown
