Rod Goodall Directs "The Quare Land"

... The quick–fire banter between the two characters escalates into an epic finale as both try to reason each other into submission. The Quare Land examines motivation, greed and money in a very humorous, caustic and incisive way. John McManus’ play A Lock of Fierce Roars featured in the 2008 Druid Debuts. The Quare Land is his first full professional production.

Rod Goodall couldn't make Footsbarn's 35th Anniversary Celebration, because of his daughter's wedding, but Chris, one of "The Irish Girls," told me about his many activities in Galway. He was always an energetic man!

If you happen to be in Ireland soon -- check out the Galway Arts Festival and The Quare Land!

What about Amsterdam (besides Footsbarn at Theater Carre?)
