An accomplished, beautiful forty-year-old woman, The Mai has always sought an exceptional life. Robert, her cellist husband, has always felt stifled by The Mai’s ideals of perfection.
After seventeen years he leaves her, whereupon she sets about building a dream house in the hope that he will one day return to her. From her fairytale castle, The Mai waits by the window for her dark-haired prince to return. Set in the inspiring surrounds of the West of Ireland, on the banks of the legendary Owl Lake, we enter this world on the day of Robert’s return after an absence of four years.performance dates: February 28 - March 2 & 7 - 9, 2014
AFD mounts 4 plays each season, and every one takes months of preparation: rehearsals, costumes, sets, and more. It's a true community effort, and pulls together people from all ages and backgrounds. It's also fun, and we hope you can not only attend, but join us to help!
