Drama: Callaghan’s Place

Update – 20th Nov: Unfortunately the show has had to be cancelled due to a bereavement associated with the drama group. The show has been rescheduled for January 2016.

Killorglin Drama Group present their new production of “Callaghan’s Place”. A two-act play by renowned Sligo-born playwright John Mc Dwyer, (works include ‘Unforgiven’, ‘You’ll never walk alone’, ‘Love is’ and more), it tells the tale of a family struggling to cope with economic and social life. An only daughter is about to leave home. Her father is besotted and bereft at the thought; her mother is ignored and unhappy. Enter an Englishman of unknown reputation or origin into “Callaghan’s Place”, and the tale follows the community’s fascination and curiosity. Who is he, where has he come from and what did he do? The intrigue builds into a crescendo through lively scenes of rich dialogue. This interpretation by Killorglin Drama Group brings the setting to a rural Kerry scene and the storytelling is punctuated throughout with heartfelt truths and hilarious metaphors, guaranteeing a very enjoyable evening’s entertainment!

Friday 20th & Saturday 21st November,  8pm at the Briery Gap.
Tickets: €15 / €12 / €10 please. Bookings: 026 41793
