Irish theater fest showcases contemporary offerings

By Sam Adams
UNM linguistics professor and actor Alan Hudson was sitting at El Pinto. It was March 2010, and he'd just seen a performance of The Diary of Anne Frank at The Filling Station. He was surrounded by people involved in the production. As theater talk filled the air, Hudson recalls prominent local actor and director Brian Hansen offhandedly proposing the idea of an Irish theater festival in Albuquerque. "That kind of lit a fuse of some sort in my brain," says Hudson, who was born and raised in Dublin.
