Mur­der planned at An Gri­anan!

Mid Louth Independent - - NEWS - Ali­son COMYN

MUR­DER will be on the menu at a thrilling new play ex­clu­sive to the Drogheda Arts Festival 2018.

‘A Mid­sum­mer Night’s Mur­der’ is writ­ten by Niall O’Brien and Colm McAr­dle of Catas­tro­phe Theatre Com­pany and will be di­rected by Paul Hayes CEO of Tain Cen­tre, Dun­dalk.

It is an in­ter­ac­tive mur­der mys­tery event to en­ter­tain and en­thral. The tale be­gins with one of the na­tion’s most pow­er­ful men invit­ing the great and the good to a mid­sum­mer night’s feast.

The au­di­ence will en­joy a de­light­ful three course meal fea­tur­ing won­der­ful lo­cal pro­duce … but be­ware, as di­rec­tor Paul Hayes ex­plains, mur­der and re­venge will also be key in­gre­di­ents of the night!

‘This is an ab­so­lutely en­ter­tain­ing play, which is su­perbly writ­ten, with funny lines, great char­ac­ters and lots of red her­rings,’ he says.

‘It’s not like a mur­der mys­tery even­ing, where the au­di­ence dresses up, but rather is a play in three acts, with the ac­tion tak­ing place in be­tween cour­ses. Guests will be able to fig­ure out ‘who­dun­nit’ in the end, with lots of fun along the way.’

The play was orig­i­nally de­vised for Christ­mas, and sold out nights in Tal­laght and Sligo, but this is the first trip to Drogheda in the new guise.

‘It’s a very Louth-based show, and an Gri­anan was a great find for the lo­ca­tion, as with the long drive­way and grand rooms, guests will get a real vibe for the show,’ adds Paul.

‘It is set at a posh awards cer­e­mony in the 1950s, and even though we say it’s not fancy dress, I imag­ine a few of the guests will want to dress up for the oc­ca­sion.’

The event can cater for up to 100 guests, and it’s for one night only, so de­mand for tick­ets is ex­pected to be high.

Tick­ets for the event, which will be held in An Gri­anan, Ter­mon­feckin, Co Louth on Fri­day May 4th are priced at €49.00, which in­cludes a three-course din­ner or €54 in­clud­ing trans­port from Drogheda.
