THREE Ten­nessee Wil­liams plays are to be per­formed by Cool­gre­any Am­a­teur Dra­matic So­ci­ety in St Mogue’s Hall, Inch, later this month.

The one-act plays will be staged from Tues­day to Thurs­day, Septem­ber 26 to 28. Tick­ets are €10 and will be avail­able at the door. Doors open at 7.30 p.m. for an 8 p.m. start. Com­pli­men­tary home made cakes and tea will be avail­able.

First up is ‘The Lady of Lark­spur Lo­tion’, a light drama set in New Or­leans about the frus­tra­tions of a land­lady and her trou­ble­some ten­ant. It fea­tures Fi­nola Mont­gomery and Ge­orge Per­ci­val, and they are di­rected by Ea­monn O’Sheil.

They will be fol­lowed by a per­for­mance of ‘Talk to me like the rain and let me lis­ten.’ This is about two lost and des­ti­tute souls, who are bound to­gether and dam­aged by lone­li­ness and poverty in a big un­car­ing city.

The play fea­tures Carl Nuzum and Paula Breen D’Arcy, with Ned Dempsey as di­rec­tor.

The final play is ‘Some­thing Un­spo­ken’ which is Cool­gre­any’s en­try in the 2017 one act drama fes­ti­val cir­cuit.
