‘Weighing In’ play review
The Kiltegan Drama Group staged the second and final performance of ‘Weighing In’, a three-woman, one-act play by Ger Gallagher. The three actresses – Valerie Byrne, Nicola Levear and Lisa McKenna – were simply wonderful and deserving of the standing ovation they received from a packed house. Valerie is a seasoned member of the drama group, Nicola made her stage debut earlier this year and we think this was Lisa’s first time to tread the boards. Their performances were superb in a very funny play that also had room for pathos. Apart from being a great evening of entertainment and acting excellence, it was in aid of a very good cause – a Cinema Room for the patients of Baltinglass Hospital. Well done to Valerie Byrne, who was the driving force behind the whole venture.
