The McKenna family get together at their remote West Ireland holiday home to mark the 21st birthday of their late son Gene, hoping to find closure. The parents have thrown themselves into their work but their other children have been cut adrift with no real purpose or desire to have children of their own. Their eccentric cousin Bridget appears along the causeway, inviting herself for birthday cake and ready to expose a family secret. Will the family hold things together in the face of an unexpected visit from the past? THERE CAME A GYPSY RIDING is a powerful and moving play about a family coping with the loss of a loved one.

This amateur production of “There Came a Gypsy Riding” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
