Gorgeous brendan conroy performance of synge play

See it if video performance of The Aran Islands gives an enchanting mix of fine poetic language, narrative, character acting and cinematography. Tops!

Don't see it if you dislike poetic narratives, great acting, diverse characterizations in a one-man show or filmed performances. I found this captivating.

Masterful, Slow, Great acting, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if you enjoy one-person explorations into character. A journey to another time and place. well done and engrossing

Don't see it if you want action and stage business. This is carried by his performance and his craft. The characters are the interest and his affection
