The Irish Cultural Centre in Canton, Mass., will host Galway’s Headford Theatre Group on Friday, July 5, and Realtai Corafinne on Friday and Saturday, July 12 and 13, at 8 p.m.

The Headford Theatre Group, which has won seven international awards, will present the American debut of “Thy Will be Done”, by Michael Carey and directed by Mary Kirrane.

unfolds, he finds himself cast unwittingly into the central role.
