COOLGREANY DRAMA GROUP TO TAKE ON TENNESSEE WILLIAMS
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.
‘Something Unspoken’ is described as a funny and touching portrayal of a wealthy Southern spinster and her secretary who have lived together in the city of Meridian for 15 years.
They will be played by Sally Stevens and Maggie Murphy, under the direction of Ned Dempsey
Pádraig O’Leary is on sound, and Denis Moules on lighting for the evening.
