The Observer, reviewing a rare British revival in 1992 described THE MADRAS HOUSE as a “brilliant… electrifying play” on the subjects of “sex, shopping and social embarrassment.”

An opportunity to take a peek inside the process and ask questions of the producer and director.

The Financial Times critic Alastair Macauley admitted, “No brief newspaper review can convey the way this play’s detail becomes so enthralling. I had not seen it before. Hours after I am still electrified. No British play of this century has so excited me.”

REUNION READING: October 23rd, 2006 In 1999 Mint first called attention to the neglected genius of Harley Granville-Barker with our New York Premiere of his 1905 masterpiece, THE VOYSEY INHERITANCE. First presented as a showcase for 20 sold-out performances; we brought the production back in January 2000 for an off-Broadway run of nine weeks which also played to packed houses every night.

Moore is the Artistic Director of New York’s own Irish Repertory Theatre. Recognized with a special Drama Desk Award for “Excellence in Presenting Distinguished Irish Drama,” and the Lucille Lortel Award for “Outstanding Body of Work,” the Irish Repertory Theatre has celebrated the very best in Irish theatre for eighteen years

“Few theatrical works so shrewdly raise profound questions about the role of ordinary morality in the making of money, and none in English does it with such elegance and wit,” is what The New York Times wrote in their review of our production: “A playwright and a company can’t do much better.”

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23 following the matinee Martin Meisel on Ervine and his contemporaries
