Theatre major Mariah Kuhn plays Teresa in Theatre Wesleyan's upcoming production of The Hostage by Brendan Behan, opening on Thursday, Nov. 1.

This unique musical and theatrical experience tells the story of a man in the Irish Republican Army who is to be hanged, and a British soldier held hostage by a “band” of characters in a Dublin lodging house. This production contains some adult language, loud sound effects (including gunshots and explosions), as well as simulated smoking.

Talk about learning an accent in the show: Learning the Irish accent was fun and exciting because once you learn the sounds and lilt, you just play with it until it sounds right.

Your favorite song in the show: "If You Marry Me" because it's sweet and bouncy and fun!

Why audiences will enjoy the show: The show is fun, and exciting, and gut wrenching. It will have you laughing and crying all while swaying to a catchy tune.
