Encore performance of Regina Taylor's TRINITY RIVER PLAYS at the IRVING ARTS CENTER. The play spans 18 years in the life of Iris and her Oak Cliff matriarchal family. Set in the 1970's - 1990's, the piece is an interlocking of three emotional one act plays -- "Jar Fly", "Rain", and "Ghost(story)." The play is a searing family drama colored by the nuisances unique to the Dallas region. Regina Taylor, a Dallas native, is an accomplished playwright and actress, best known for her Emmy-nominated role in the 1990's television series "I'll Fly Away."
