Lovely cake, Long, Well acted, Absorbing, Edifying

See it if you'd enjoy a bio-play abt great Irish co-founder of Abbey Th. 2 short plays included (1st delights, 2nd doesn't). 4 strg actors (2f/2m)

Don't see it if you want a tight script; LG rambles, has meh 4th wall breaks. Sh trim. But fascinating life! Had vision/talent. Friends: Shaw, Yeats, etc.

Clever, Great acting, Intelligent, Great writing, Delightful

See it if you like getting to know a theater personality with an entertaining presentation, well-staged and acted by a cast of 4 in multiple roles.

Don't see it if you want a fast look at the main character's life-this is a pleasantly paced, 4th wall breaking, review with 2 short plays performed within.

"The show could use a bit of trimming, but everyone's heart is in the right place and, ultimately, 'Lady G: Plays and Whisperings of Lady Gregory' shines a warm glow on an overlooked playwright, producer, and nurturer of the greatest writers of the Irish Renaissance."

"Ciarán O'Reilly is throwing a good old-fashioned Irish wake, with poems, songs, and a slice of barmbrack (Irish sweet bread) for each of the lucky attendees. It's a charming and touching tribute to a woman whose literary efforts are usually far less appreciated, unfortunately, than her advocacy."

"A fascinating study of the unforgettable Lady Gregory. Too bad the grande dame isn't alive to see it for herself."
