Playwright Marie Jones and her husband, director Ian McElhinney, collaborated on the Irish comedy/Broadway hit, Stones in His Pockets. The pair is back with a comedy drama set in an abandoned warehouse in post-IRA Belfast. A homeless tramp befriends an 18-year-old boy on the run, while an older female prostitute and her transvestite brother who goes by the name of Lillian make up the rest of this motley, but supportive, family.

Irish Arts Center, 553 W. 51st St., (212) 868-4444. Previews start Sept. 6. Sept. 16–Oct.28.
