SCENES FROM A LIFE

THEATER

"Same Old Moon" is a new comedy-drama by Geraldine Aron, the Irish writer who entertained audiences at the Irish Classical Theatre Company with her "A Galway Girl." That was a short piece and sounded as though it was not adverse to autobiography. Now in her new play Aron has gone the whole way, preparing an autobiographical play about growing up in Galway and then living in London and writing. She likes short, pithy scenes and there are 19 of them, the nearest one in time to us in the 1980s and the furthest in 1941, and many others in the '50s, '60s, and one in the '70s. Vincent O'Neill, the head of the company, is directing the show, which opens Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the theater at 48 W. Chippewa St. Josephine Hogan plays Brenda, Aron's alter ego in this play, and Richard Wesp plays Desmond. Others in the cast are Rosalind Cramer, Darleen Pickering Hummert, Michael Russo, Paul O'Hern, Maureen Ann Porter, Lona Geiser, Arlene Clement and Anthony Leone. Performances continue Thursdays and Fridays at 7:30 p.m., Saturdays at 3 and 7:30 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m., through May 7.
