Spreading the News

by Lady Augusta Gregory

Directed by Michael Graham

Part of the Alcyone Festival 08

In a small village in rural Ireland, a new (English) magistrate inspects stalls at the local fair, expecting the worst. Because of Mrs. Tarpey's hearing impairment and the villagers' love of gossip, a misunderstanding grows and grows, leading to a false arrest for a murder that never happened.
