A comedy by Lady Gregory
Cast and 'RIDERS TO THE SEA'
A play by J. M. Synge
Cast
Produced by H. L. Morrow
Two writers whose names are for ever associated with the famous Abbey Theatre in Dublin are represented in tonight's double bill of Irish plays, to be performed by the Abbey Theatre company, which has come to Belfast from Dublin specially for the occasion.
The first play, Hyacinth Halvey , is by Lady Gregory, one of the founders of the Abbey Theatre. It is the story of a young man who comes to a small Irish country town as a sub-sanitary-inspector, preceded by the highest possible testimonials, and of how he tries in vain to lose his character.
As for the second play, listeners who remember the broadcast some months ago by this company of Synge's The Playboy of the Western World will undoubtedly look forward to hearing his tragedy, Riders to the Sea, tonight.
Both plays have been successfully televised from Alexandra Palace.
