“The Hostage,” the Irish Classical Theatre Company’s recent production in Buffalo, had a strong SUNY Fredonia connection: actors Joshua Radford, ’10 (at left), an alumnus and Theatre and Dance professor Tom Loughlin, along with former music student, Mary Ramsey.

All performed in the Brendan Behan classic drama that ran at the Andrews Theater on Main Street.

And a nice feather in the cap for Radford was being featured in the cover photo of the Jan 12-18 issue of Buffalo’s Artvoice

Set in the late-1950s, when it was written, "The Hostage" tells the tale of an English soldier, played by Radford, held hostage by Irish radicals who hope to prevent Britain from executing one of their compatriots. In the process, the soldier falls in love with an Irish convent girl, as the conflict swirls around them.

The quasi-musical show, directed by Greg Natale, featured a cast of 17, including musicians Ramsey and Inga Yanoski.
