Directed by Tom Reing and starring Jared Michael Delaney (The Hand of Gaul) and Adam Rzepka (PAC’s The Sea Plays), Trousers takes on friendship and its hazards, from the exciting adventures of youth to the big steps of adulthood. Mick and Dermot shared a giddy summer in Manhattan in 1989, working as busboys to earn college money. Singing duets to impress girls and chasing the New York dream, it was all for one and one for all…almost. Fast forward to 2006: Mick is down on his luck and hustles his old friend Dermot for a place to stay in Dublin, up-ending Dermot’s carefully ordered life. These thirty-somethings are jolted back to that crazy long-ago summer. Now on two very different tracks, each thinks the other needs his life straightened out. But could it just be déjà vu? Mon-Thurs at 7pm, Fri-Sat at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm.
