The Irish Repertory Theatre specializes in the works of Irish playwrights, and one might say that Irish playwrights specialize in Irish tragedy.  Like dry humor, lyrical poetry and fighting at pubs (and parties, and weddings, and wakes) tragedy runs through Irish culture like one of the innumerable rivers that nourish that country’s verdant landscape.  In Dublin Carol, Conor McPherson has written a variation on that theme in a well paced play about loss and the hope for redemption that hits some striking emotional peaks and valleys.
