Ireland’s national theater, the Abbey, has asked 50 writers and 50 actors to imagine what they want our society to look like and how we can get there. In this new series of monologues, self-taped in isolation, writers including Frank McGuinness, Iseult Golden, Stacey Gregg, and Sarah Hanly have asked the country’s brightest performers to reflect on the coronavirus crisis and its impact on our lives. Released on YouTube, understored with music by the Irish composer Ray Harman, Dear Ireland has a cast that includes Brendan Gleeson and Tony-nominated Denise Gough. —B.A.
