Title treatment for Theatre Wesleyan's The Hostage

An innocent British soldier is taken into a bawdy Irish bar by the IRA as a hostage, to be shot if the British go through with the execution of an IRA youth. He has a romance with the barmaid. She and several habitues try unsuccessfully to arrange his escape. He is shot in the attempt but not for long. Right in the middle of his own requiem, he rises to sing a final rousing song.

"Brimming with magnificent exuberance, wild, unruly, satirical, mocking...Throbs with [...] an instinct for dramatic richness." — New York Post

Presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Publishing Company, Inc.
