THEATER | 'Closing Time' 

In "Closing Time," playwright Owen McCafferty mines the subtle drama of one long day in a grubby Belfast pub and hotel on the brink of shutting down. Run by Vera, who has grown bitter at her situation, and her constantly half-drunk husband, Robbie, the neighborhood establishment has never quite recovered from The Troubles, and the regulars are each stuck in their own forms of stasis. Jean Gordon Ryon this week will direct the Irish Players of Rochester in its staging of "Closing Time." The company will restage this play in May at the Acting Irish International Theatre Festival in Calgary.

"Closing Time" will be on stage Friday, March 30, through Sunday, April 15, at MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Avenue. 8 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays; 2 p.m. on Sundays, April 8 and April 15. $19 adults; $14 seniors 65 and up; $9 under 25. muccc.org; rochestercommunityplayers.org.
