Improbable Frequency at 59E59's Theater A
Dublin, Irelandï¿½s Rough Magic Theatre Company present the US premiere of their wartime musical comedy Improbable Frequency, with book and lyrics by Arthur Riordan and music by Bell Helicopter, opening at 59E59's Theater A on 4 Dec 2008, following previews from 4 Dec and running through to 4 Jan 2009.
Improbable Frequency: While war rages across Europe, Dublin revels in its knife-edge neutrality as the fledgling Irish Free State tries to remain open for business. A hotbed of political and cultural bohemians, the city is host to a volatile mixture of exiled intellectuals, literary bar- lizards, British spies and Nazi sympathizers.
When coded messages, broadcast during an Irish radio-requests show, draw the attention of the British, a young code breaker called Tristram Faraday is sent across the Irish Sea to investigate. His enquiries lead him into a series of deeply improbable encounters, where the truth is more improbable than anyone could have imagined.
Directed by Rough Magic Artistic Director Lynne Parker, Improbable Frequency features Sarah-Jane Drummey, Peter Hanly, Darragh Kelly, Louis Lovett, Marty Rea and Cathy White.
The creative team includes Alan Farquharson (sets), Kathy Strachan (costumes), Sinï¿½ad Mckenna(lighting) and Bell Helicopter (sound).
