Northlight production headed to Ireland

Northlight Theatre's production of Bruce Graham's "The Outgoing Tide," a play dealing with the effects of aging, is headed to the Galway Arts Festival in Ireland, replete with the original Northlight cast of John Mahoney, Rondi Reed and Thomas J. Cox.

Artistic director BJ Jones said that "the entire cast enthusiastically returns to this production." The Galway Arts Festival is slated for July 17-21 in the scenic Irish city; attendance typically tops 150,000 people at 176 performances coming from all over the world. The festival has a long-standing relationship with Chicago theater companies, including Northlight.

"The Outgoing Tide," directed by Jones, premiered at Northlight in May, 2011.
