Theatre Wesleyan continues the 2018/19 season with Brendan Behan's musical and theatrical play, The Hostage, which plays its final four performances beginning Thursday, Nov. 8 through Sunday, Nov. 11.

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 haze and onstage smoking.
