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.

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.
