Cork City Council is proud to promote “The Cause” a new play by Seán O’Deadaigh, premiering in The Glen Theatre, Banteer, Co. Cork on 10th September 2021.
Written by Seán Ó Deadaigh and directed by Tadhg O’Keeffe, The Cause depicts the story around the capture of a Black and Tan officer by members of the Cork No. 1 Brigade, Irish Revolutionary Army Captain Seán O’Donoghue and Volunteer Jamesy O’Mahoney during one of the greatest single atrocities of Ireland’s War of Independence – The Burning of Cork.
The play will run from 10th to 12th September 2021, with more dates to be announced.
This year Castlemagner Players are staging “Mother Knows Best” by Jimmy Keary. This 3 act play centres around Nick Cassidy who, while doing a painting job in the McDermott’s house, renews a friendship with their youngest daughter Suzy. The two begin dating, much to the disapproval of Suzy’s mother, Tess, who is hoping to make a match for her daughter with stuffy financial consultant, Adrian Bird. Tess resolves to break up the young couple by whatever means she can. However, such is Tess’ preoccupation with her daughter’s love-life, she fails to notice that her own husband, Harry is falling under the spell of her man-hungry golfing partner, Dulcie Cotter. Matters come to a head when Nick’s workmate, Joe Galligan breaks into McDermott’s, looking for money to pay off his gambling debts. During the theft, Tess’s plotting is exposed and Harry comes to a fateful decision.
The play is again directed by Neil Moylan and the final performances will be staged in Castlemagner Community Centre on Friday 29th, Saturday 30th November and Sunday 1st December at 8pm nightly, admission €10.

“Sing what’s gone so it won’t be.” This is not a story about losing someone, but the bit afterwards when they’ve just been lost. It’s not CSI, but it is a kind of forensics; a putting together of memories to try and make sense of it all. Who was he to you? Who was he to your mother? Who was he to his mother? It’s about family, it’s about love in the absence of the loved one. It happens to us all, and it doesn’t unhappen; but you can come and share the story so it won’t be forgotten.
