Listen to this story
A hundred years ago, Irish immigrant Mary Mallon, on suspicion of carrying typhoid fever, was imprisoned and made news headlines in New York City. Todd Moe talks with actor Eithne McGuiness, who performs her one-woman play Typhoid Mary at the Indian Lake Theater Sunday night (7:30). It's the captivating story of a brave Irish peasant who fought tooth and nail for her freedom and took on the state of New York. McGuiness says the show explores the immigrant experience, discrimination and public health attitudes.
