Upcoming Drama Productions

Drama 'Widow's Paradise' by The Carnegie Players

 

Friday 13th March 8pm
Tickets€15/€12 (students)

Postponed until Further Notice

Widow's Paradise' by Sam Cree. Directed by Anne-Marie Cleary and presented byThe Carnegie Players. 

Widow's Paradise is a 3 Act comedy set in the 1960's. The action of the play takes place in a "luxury" caravan with 5 ladies embarking on a "strictly women only" holiday, set beautifully in the Kerry countryside

A subsequent case of "mistaken caravan identity" sees the "Widows Paradise" thrown into disarray with the arrival of no nonsense alpha-male Harry, his dim-witted side-kick Ernie and Harry's handsome young son Alan. What was supposed to be a scene of peace and tranquility turns into a riotous clash of the sexes, each with their own story to tell! 

Not to be missed!
