Rated 4.0

It’s a not-so-depressing Irish play, as the five Mundy sisters of Donegal spend the summer of 1936 with a new radio and their brother the priest, recently returned from serving the lepers of Uganda. Paganism wars with stern Catholicism, leading to some damn funny lines. Yes, it’s nostalgic, which means there’s loss; however, the humor keeps things from descending into total rather than merely impending doom. F, Sa 8pm; Su 2:30pm. Through 7/31. $12-$15.
