Arthur Riordan's comedy, featuring an original score by Irish band Bell Helicopter, follows the exploits of British code breaker and cruciverbalist Tristram Faraday's (Strawdog Ensemble Member Mike Dailey) secret mission to 1941 Dublin to investigate suspicious radio broadcasts. Before long, Faraday is drawn into a morass of intrigue and deception that involves overthrowing the British, undermining the Nationalists, subverting the forces of nature and of course, impressing the lovely and brainy Philomena (Strawdog Ensemble Member Sarah Goeden).
The production team features Strawdog Ensemble Member Jordan Kardasz (light design), and with guest production members Joanna Iwanicka (scenic design), Jordan Muller (stage manager), Sarah Burnham (production manager), Rachel Sypniewski (costume design), Heath Hays (sound design), Jeff Shields (props designer), Kathy Logelin (dialect coach), Eli King (technical director) and Aaron Cannon (master electrician).
