More Forgotten Irish Drama from the Mint

Schmidt and Patrick Fitzgerald in Katie Roche.

Thanks to the Mint Theater Company I've had a lovely time getting acquainted with Irish playwright Teresa Deevy over the last three seasons. Their current offering, Katie Roche, isn't my favorite of three Deevy plays the Mint has presented since 2010, but it's certainly still a worthwhile work, and it does have the wonderful Wrenn Schmidt in the title role. I've enjoyed her work in a couple of other Off Broadway shows (the Mint's Temporal Powers and Be a Good Little Widow), and I think she'll make a dandy Hilde opposite Jon Turturro's Solness in BAM's upcoming The Master Builder.
