Lat­est play is guar­an­teed to make you laugh

Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

En­nis­cor­thy thes­pi­ans are in for a treat on Thurs­day, Fri­day and Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 19-21 as En­nis­cor­thy Drama will have them rolling in the aisles with an ex­tremely hu­mor­ous play ‘Shake­speare’s a Dick’ at the Pre­sen­ta­tion Art Cen­tre.

This hi­lar­i­ous mas­ter­piece writ­ten by Mark Aloy­sius Ken­neally and per­formed by lo­cal ac­tors An­nemarie Whe­lan as In­grid, Kit Bol­ger as Doris, Tim Con­naughton as Raimie and Brian Mullen as Wally and di­rected by EDG’s own Fin­tan Kelly, is guar­an­teed to put a smile on even the most solemn of faces.

A most clever par­ody that would have amused even the Bard of Avon, him­self, I’ll wager.

All comic hell breaks loose when a young, philis­tine called, ap­pro­pri­ately enough, Wally, ridicules the name of Shake­speare and chooses to at­tend a Mon­ster Truck Show in­stead of a the­atri­cal per­for­mance of ‘As You Like It’.

The wrath of the Mae­stro de­scends on him like a bib­li­cal plague, and af­ter a heavy night of carous­ing he finds that he can only speak in Shake­spear- ean verse.

His best friend Raimie seeks a cure from a high school teacher In­grid while his girl­friend Doris swoons for the new, ro­man­tic sound­ing man in her life.

This is a must folks so put it in the di­ary now. Tick­ets at €10 can be booked by call­ing An­nemarie at 083/4008840 or email­ing amwhe­lan@staidans.ie

Cam­ross Drama Group will also be per­form­ing on the night and fol­low­ing the three per­for­mances En­nis­cor­thy Drama will be tak­ing Shake­speare’s a Dick on the One Act Cir­cuit 2017.

Di­rec­tor Fin­tan Kelly.
