A Comedy by Lady Gregory.
[Starring] Kathleen Drago, Fred O'Donovan, Tony Quinn

The Workhouse Ward was one of the most famous of the plays that Lady Gregory wrote for the Irish National Theatre, of which she was one of the founders and inspirers. It has been revived many times at' the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, and it was produced in London at the Little Theatre in April, 1935, with Fred O'Donovan as Mike Mclnerny, the part he will play today. Fred O'Donovan is one of the most famous Irish actors known to London audiences. Theatre-goers will remember his fine performance in the West-End as Lanigan in Denis Johnston's play, The Moon in the Yellow River.
