FAILTE by Meg Haley
Sunday, January 30 @ 6:30pm
State Theatre, 719 Congress Ave.
Failte is the story of Sean, young man struggling to find out who he is in the midst of residual tensions in Belfast, Northern Ireland, 1988. He has to sort through family secrets, a job that makes him a traitor and being betrayed by the one he loves. Will he choose to protect the stories of the past that had been hidden from him so long, or fight to save his chance for a future family that also may be full of lies?
