Someone Who'll Watch Over Me

Portland Stage Studio Theater, Portland, ME   (view map)

LAUGHING MATTERS | In its opening weekend, the play SOMEONE WHO’LL WATCH OVER ME paints the harrowing image of three men (an American, an Englishman, and an Irishman) held hostage in a basement in Beirut. Sounds like a tough recipe for a comedy, but that’s exactly what Frank McGuinness’s play is, as the script uses the precarious horrors of the 10-year Lebanon hostage crisis as a litmus test for the human spirit and the power of friendship. (Disclosure: This production, mounted by the American Irish Repertory Ensemble, counts this writer among its cast.) Tonight’s performance preceded by a presentation on peace efforts and hostage negotiations between the Middle East and the West at 7 pm. Show starts at 7:30, running through Oct 19 at the Portland Stage Company Studio Theater, 25A Forest Ave. $15-20. 207.799.5327.
