2nd Wednesday Theater: The Quiet Man

 

March 14

A monthly play-reading of rarely-performed classic, undiscovered gems, old chestnuts, and exciting new works. 

On March 14, we will feature a staged reading of the screenplay for John Ford's The Quiet Man. After accidentally killing an opponent in the ring, boxer Sean Thornton (played by John Wayne in the film) leaves America and returns to his native Ireland, hoping buy his family's homestead and live in peace. In doing so, he runs afoul of Will Danaher, who long coveted the property. Spitefully, Will objects when his fiery sister Mary Kate begins a romance with Sean, and refuses to hand over her dowry. Mary Kate refuses to consummate the marriage until Sean retrieves the money. 

Presented by Ed O'Toole.
