Ray Douglas Bradbury (b. August 22, 1920, Waukegan, Illinois – d. June 5, 2012, Los Angeles) was an American author and screenwriter.

"While engaged in writing a screenplay in Ireland, Ray Bradbury fell in, around and under the quick sprinting spirit of Erin's men, and learned all there is to know of Anthem Sprinting - the curious Irish race which the reader learns about in the title play.

The Anthem Sprinters and Other Antics includes the hilarious adventures and misadventures of an innocent American in the grasp of the imaginative rural Irish. In these four plays, Mr. Bradbury discloses the effect of Deanna Durbin on an important local contest and the comic results of an attempt to introduce modern commercial slogans into a tradition-bound community. Not only that, but he tells the fearful consequences of great Bicycle Collisions on the boggy roads of back-country Eire, as well as advising all who may wish to know what is best to give up for Lent. These and other antics are the charming, always amusing, displays of wit and wisdom in these first plays by the well-known American writer."
