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.
