Solemn Mockeries http://news.stlpublicradio.org en The Midnight Company Presents 'Solemn Mockeries' http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/midnight-company-presents-solemn-mockeries <p>Continuing his run of one-man plays, artistic director Joe Hanrahan stars in the Midnight Company's production of "Solemn Mockeries," based on the true story of Shakespeare forger William Henry-Ireland. The play opened last Friday at Tower Grove Abbey, with Friday and Saturday performances through January 18.</p><p>Hanrahan described the play as both sad and funny; sad because it tells the story of a young man desperate for the approval of his father, and yet funny because it is filled with sly, humorous comments.</p> Fri, 10 Jan 2014 22:50:13 +0000 Camille Phillips 32919 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org The Midnight Company Presents 'Solemn Mockeries'
