Chattanooga Times Free Press - - ARTS - STAFF RE­PORT

Pa­trons of Back Al­ley Pro­duc­tions who en­joyed the tale of “Ir­ish Courage,” which Back Al­ley pre­sented last year, will want to fol­low its se­quel, “An Ir­ish Courage Christ­mas,” which opens Fri­day, Dec. 7, for eight per­for­mances over three week­ends.

“An Ir­ish Courage Christ­mas” will be pre­sented by Back Al­ley at the Mars The­atre, 117 N. Chat­tanooga St. in LaFayette, Ge­or­gia. Shows are sched­uled for 7:30 p.m. Dec. 7-8, 14-15, 21-22; and 2:30 p.m. Dec. 9 and 16.

Based on “The Play­boy of the Western World” and “Fin­negan’s Wake,” this show set in the sleepy town of Mayo is a Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tion un­like any other, com­plete with mu­sic, dance, laugh­ter and an authen­tic Ir­ish twist.

The orig­i­nal script brings to life the same char­ac­ters and fun of “Ir­ish Courage.” How­ever, it’s not nec­es­sary to have seen “Ir­ish Courage” to en­joy this se­quel. “An Ir­ish Courage Christ­mas” is a fes­tive cel­e­bra­tion about sto­ry­telling, Ir­ish tra­di­tion, friend­ship, com­mu­nity, love, loss and mir­a­cles.

Tick­ets are $12, $13 and $16. They can be pur­chased in ad­vance at www. bap­shows.com.


Zach­ery Green is among ac­tors in “An Ir­ish Courage Christ­mas.”
