The Aisling – An Irish Ghost Story

November 8, 2017 @ 7:30 pm

The Aisling

The Theater To Go Play Reading Series at the 1867 Sanctuary continues with The Aisling — An Irish Ghost Story by Ian August.

Set against the bloody backdrop of Northern Ireland in the 1980’s, the Regan family have their own battles to fight: A grim family secret threatens to blow them all apart, while pushing them deeper into the darkness of war. The Aisling is a riveting drama about the dualities of fantasy and reality, sanity and madness, light and dark, and one family’s struggle to survive.

Theater To GoTheater To Go was started in 1992 and has been providing quality entertainment in NJ and regionally since then. It is best known for audience participation murder mysteries and other interactive comedy theater however has expanded to include full length plays and staged readings.

Our Interactive shows have been performed regionally and around the United States for many corporate events and our shows have been excellent activities for corporate team building and holiday parties. In addition Theater To Go has performed at many fundraisers, private parties and public events. The interactive nature of these shows allows the audiences to play along with the actors. We believe that whereas most adults stop playing in adolescence, actors play all their lives, and we invite you to join us in the playground!

Theater To Go has added audience participation Movie Sing Alongs/Play Alongs where the audience is invited to join in as we all view the movie and engage in guided activities. The audience is invited to come in costume, everyone receives a “goody bag” containing participation props, and Guided by our MC the audience gets right into the action of these classic movies. Recent events included Grease, The Wizard of Oz, Mary Poppins, Annie, Mamma Mia and the wildly popular Frozen.

RUTH MARKOE (Director/Producer) is an active director/actor in the region. Most recently, Ruth directed Cat On A Hot Tin Roof and The 39 Steps for Theater To Go at Kelsey Theater and has directed at the Bucks County Playhouse.

Ruth is also the owner/ artistic director of Theater to Go which has been providing theatrical entertainment since 1992 and has been invited to perform throughout the US.
