After a short stint as international bon vivants, the blog is back in Winston-Salem and will resume regular blogging (it promises). The production of Belfast Blues at the Brian Friel Theatre of the Queen's University was a success. Check out the very nice description in the blog of the Minister of Culture, Arts, and Leisure for Northern Ireland. The upper photo, taken by Abe, shows the blog in the alley outside of the Duke of York pub very late at night and very happy after the first performance.
