THURSDAY, September 16th at 7:00pm: The Quiet Man
This short story by Maurice Walsh first appeared in the February 11th edition of the Saturday Evening Post in 1933. It is the rocky love story of Shawn Kelvin and Ellen O'Grady, how these two quiet people are brought together, marry, fall in love (yes in that order) and the results of what can happen when someone quiet is pushed hard enough that they make the choice, albeit briefly, not to be.
The story was transformed by filmmaker John Ford into the 1952 film academy award-winning film starring John Wayne, Maureen O'Hara, Victor McLaughlin and Barry Fitzgerald. Both the movie and the story are long time favorites of Caledonia, and she is thrilled to present the story tonight, live in voice.
