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.

"That kind of lit a fuse of some sort in my brain," says Hudson, who was born and raised in Dublin.

Take that as a good thing, as I’ll be conducting the Alibi’s ninth annual photo contest. So go ahead. Give us your best shot(s). Here are the rules.
