    Subject: The Hostage
    Date: Nov 25, 2004
    Sender: Tim SennettPrevious | Next

    I was fortunate enough to see The Hostage the year that Kruschev visited the UN...(they included some lines about Kruschev in the play) but what was best of all,m was having Brendan Behan come out onstage...drunk...and give us at least a half hour of himself..It was aonce in a lifetime occurence and wonderful theatre...
    and now more than forty years later some of the lines are still inside jokes " If he wants to fight for the IRT then let him"
    And people don't even know what the IRT is anymore.
    I am looking to hear back from Caraid O'Brien who,m I e-mailed yesterdfay
    regards
    Tim Sennett...a.k. Herschel Sennett
