THEATER | "Triquetra" 

"Triquetra" is the Gaelic word for a Trinity knot, so it is an appropriate name for the Irish Players' next offering, a program of three one-act plays in three different styles by three important figures in the Irish theatrical renaissance of the 20th century. John Millington Synge's "In the Shadow of the Glen" is poetic and romantic; Padriac Colum's "The Betrayal" is political and realistic; and Lennox Robinson's "Crabbed Youth and Age" is a drawing-room comedy about the strained relations between three sisters (probably more fun than Chekhov's) and their mother. All three playwrights display that most endearing of Irish traits: the gift of the gab.

Irish Players of Rochester present "Triquetra: An Evening of Classical Irish Theater" on Friday, October 17, through Sunday, October 19, and Thursday, October 23, through Saturday, October 25, at MuCCC, 142 Atlantic Avenue. $9-$19. muccc.org; rochestercommunityplayers.org.
