The Story Brought by Brigit, by noted Irish Literary Revival playwright Lady Gregory, is a lovely, lyrical, folklore-tinged telling of the events between Palm Sunday and the Crucifixion. Reviews of its 1924 premiere called it "moving and wonderful" and "a very human, very sympathetic, and very reverent conception." Improbable Athenaeum is delighted to partner with St. Catherine’s to present this rare treat, performed by local professional actors including Nicole Jeannine Smith as St. Brigit and Lynne Locher as the holy mother Mary.
2nd Woman: You did well coming here to see him with your own eyes. For this is a story will have seven shapes put on it.
1st Woman: Indeed it is a heart-broken story you will have to bring back to Ireland.
St. Brigit: No; but a great story and a great praise I will bring with me. I have heard him myself, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world.
The Story Brought by Brigit continues Improbable Athenaeum’s acclaimed series of plays, poetry readings, and performance events.
