Drama - 'The Matchmaker' With Jon Kenny & Mary McEvoy


Saturday 20th October - 8pm
Tickets: €20

John B Keane’s, The Matchmaker
With Jon Kenny & Mary McEvoy

 Based on the novella, Letters of a County Matchmaker by JOHN B. KEANE one of Ireland’s most celebrated writers.

The productions stars Mary McEvoy best known for her role as Biddie in the long running RTE series, GLENROE and Irish Actor and comedian, Jon Kenny who was part of the Irish comic duo d’Unbelievables with Pat Shortt. Kenny is also best known outside Ireland for appearing in the Channel 4 sitcom, Father Ted. Together they play a myriad of characters in this hilarious and earthy dramatic comedy.

The play follows the efforts of Dicky Mick Dicky O'Connor to make matches for the lonely and lovelorn. Keane, an avid observer of people and the cultures that bind and create their view of the world uses The Matchmaker as an exploration of rural loneliness. Aware that generations of people became masters of their own destinies late in life, and only then began to look for companionship and love, once their duties as minder of aging parents were concluded or they had finally inherited, or were the left over brother or sister.

Using his inimitable way with words and his one sense of 'devilment' and wit, Keane delves into the longings, hungers, fears and foibles of this collection of lonely county people and creates a marvelously colorful world, taking us back to a simpler time, when phones were few and far between and the only web was one left behind by spiders.

Directed by Michael Scott.

Drama - 'The Trump Scheme' - Performed by Sneem Dram Soc

Friday November 2nd 8pm


THE TRUMP SCHEMEAdapted by Sneem DramSoc from The Mundy Scheme by Brian Friel

 Once upon a time, this country was in a state of economic paralysis. Strikes were an everyday occurrence. The country was rapidly going down the tubes. The future seemed bleak. Under intense pressure, our mother-fixated, ex-auctioneer Taoiseach developed a severe anxiety disorder and decamped from government buildings to the safety of his home under the care of his doting if demented mammy.

His minister for foreign affairs returns from New York with a plan to transform the entire west of Ireland into one large cemetery for the dead of London, Paris and New York, the brainchild of a young Manhattan property developer called Donald Trump.

In the ensuing scramble, the corrupt politicians try to double-cross one another, leaving Taoiseach Ryan on top of the greasy pole with the scheme a huge success.

The play is freely adapted from Brian Friel’s THE MUNDY SCHEME (1968), itself mildly prophetic of the Celtic Tiger years.
