March 11th and 12th 2005 feature Irish theatre, Readers Theatre Repertory’s traditional offering during St. Patrick’s month. Spreading the News, by Lady Gregory, and The Anthem Sprinters, by Ray Bradbury, will be staged. Director Mary McDonald-Lewis says “These stories both focus on a peculiarly Irish way of looking at life. And that’s especially interesting,” she says, “because one of the playwrights, Ray Bradbury, isn’t an Irish writer, but he manages to create an authentic Irish world, in typically beautiful Bradbury fashion.”
The cast featured David Berkson, Trish Egan, George Fosgate, Peter Handy, Curtis Hanson, Nurmi Husa, Matthew Martin, Jamie Miller, Randy Patterson, Janet Penner, Josh Rengert, and Wendy Wilcox.
