The Luck of the Irish

Friday, Mar 30, 2012 8:00p

The work of Medford playwright Kirsten Greenidge is characterized by a sure grasp of the nuances of race and class, never more so than in this beautifully realized new drams, directed by Melia Bensussen, about the transgenerational reverberations of a black family's decision to move into a predominantly white suburb. Extended to May 6. Presented by Huntington Theatre Company.--Don Aucoin, Globe Staff

Early in Kirsten Greenidge’s “The Luck of the Irish,’’ during a get-together that initially appears social in nature but turns out to be a very particular sort of business transaction, two couples drink from a set of glasses that seem like, but aren’t, Waterford crystal.

Two couples get together for drinks in the South End, and the talk turns to real estate. It’s the late 1950s, and one pair, black and affluent, has a proposal for the other two, who are white, working-class, and in financial straits.
