Aidan Quinn, Audra McDonald, Tonya Pinkins and Geraldine Hughes star in two fantastical short plays. In John Patrick Shanley’s Banshee, an Irish sprite pays a teacher a visit and makes an out-of-this-world proposal. In Lynn Nottage’s Poof!, a woman’s words prove cosmically powerful.
Banshee by Tony, Oscar and Pulitzer Prize winner John Patrick Shanley (Doubt, Moonstruck, Outside Mullingar) features Geraldine Hughes (Gran Torino, Rocky Balboa) and Aidan Quinn (“Elementary,” Michael Collins, Desperately Seeking Susan). Poof! by Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage (Ruined, Intimate Apparel, By The Way Meet Vera Stark) features multiple Tony winner Audra McDonald (Porgy and Bess, 110 In The Shade, A Raisin In The Sun, Ragtime) and Tony winner Tonya Pinkins (Caroline or Change, Jelly’s Last Jam).
