Day 890: Brian Friel

Laetitia and Granny were saddened to learn of the death of playwright, Brian Friel, a leading light in Irish theatre.  Dancing at Lughnasa, Philadelphia, Here I Come, and Faith Healer were special favorites.  In his honor, Laetitia wrote a limerick toast.

To a man who sought life’s truths with zeal
And on the stage made them come real
Let’s all raise a glass
To this playwright first class
And say Dia Leat to bard, Brian Friel.
