An Improbable Irish Legend by J. R. Mageean
Cast
The cast also includes: Mary Black , C. E. Owens , Robert Blair ,
Lucie Young , Elsie Wilkinson , and James Hodgen
Produced by Ursula Eason
J. R. Mageean , Ulster stage, screen, and radio actor, who is the author of this play, has been taking part in broadcast productions ever since the BBC first came to Belfast in 1924. Finn the Red is an imaginative little play, which was first produced in the Children's Hour last December. The author disclaims responsibility for historical accuracy, and says that it deals with the first of the sixteen tasks that had to be performed by Finn, King of Ulster, before he could free himself from the strange curse cast upon him because of his terrible temper.
