Posts Tagged ‘The History of Drinking in Cavan’

It is hard to imagine, but this is the 26th season for the 4th Line Theatre. The Season started off with David S. Craig’s Bombers: Reaping the Whirlwind. It’s now time for Robert Winslow’s “The History of Drinking in Cavan.”

The 4th Line Theatre is a production company and outdoor performance venue on the grounds of the Winslow family farm near the village of Millbrook. The company performs two main plays each summer. They are usually about historical subjects and premiers works by local playwrights.

“The History of Drinking in Cavan” looks at alcohol consumption or the lack thereof in the local area over the past 200 years. Robert Winslow and his alter-ego, King, take audiences on a historical adventure, covering the early days of Irish settlement in the township through to present-day habits. Along the way the audience will follow outrageous anecdotes and serious tales of local residents.

Managing Artistic Director Kim Blackwell shares her excitement…

“In our 2017 season, I am proud to share these two new works with audiences.  I have been waiting since 2010 to produce Robert Winslow’s insightful, funny and deeply personal story of alcohol consumption.  David S. Craig is a well-respected and talented Canadian playwright.  We are lucky to have him telling this important story at our theatre.”

There is a licensed concession and picnic area where you can get drinks, snacks or a full meal. You can also bring your own picnic (but do not bring your own alcoholic beverages!)
