Marilyn speaks with the founder and Artistic Director of Inis Nua Theater Company, Tom Reing.  The Inis Nua Theater Company produces contemporary provocative plays from Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales which reflect those culture’s new identities in today’s world. Encouraged by Fergus Carey, owner of Fergies Pub, 1512 Sansom, they’ve brought over a play from Ireland called “Hooked.”  “Hooked” is a dark comedy (perfect for the Halloween season) and set in a pretty little village where nothing is as it seems. The gossip, secrets and scandals will have you cringing and laughing! The show will be performed at Fergie’s Pub…(upstairs) from October 9th through the 25th and tickets are limited.
