The critically-acclaimed play, Lagan by Stacey Gregg, makes its American debut on Feb. 7 in the Villanova Theatre. The play, directed by Kathryn MacMillan, MA, ’01 CLAS, will be presented from Feb. 7 – 19. Lagan tells the stories of four families in Belfast, Ireland; their voices explore the history, legacy and impact of war.

Villanova Theatre will host Speaker’s Night following the Feb. 16 performance. Owen McCafferty, Kathryn MacMillan and Rachel O’Hanlon Rodriguez, the production’s dramaturg, will share their insights.
