Irish Arts Center

The New York-based Irish Arts Center (IAC) is an arts and cultural center dedicated to projecting a dynamic image of Ireland and Irish America for the 21st century. The IAC builds community with artists and audiences of all backgrounds, forging and strengthening cross-cultural partnerships, and preserving the evolving stories and traditions of Irish culture.

The IAC’s multi-disciplinary programming is centered around three core areas: performance—live music, dance, theatre, film, literature, and the humanities; visual arts—including presentations and cultural exhibitions that tell the evolving Irish story; and education—with dozens of classes per week in Irish language, history, music, and dance.

This acclaimed political drama is about the negotiations that led to the Good Friday Agreement, which was signed 26 years ago this month. The play examines the process that ended most of the violence of the Troubles, the conflict in Northern Ireland that dated from the late 1960s. Playwright Owen McCafferty weaves real drama from the landmark event, and the production from the Lyric Theatre in Belfast met with critical acclaim and a sold-out run. The production marks the first in the new JLGreene Theatre at the recently opened Irish Arts Center.
