THIS weekend, Friday 4, Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 February in Drumkeerin Community Centre, Drumkeerin Drama Group is back with another outstanding stage production and another comedy, one even funnier than last year’s hilarious “Widows’ Paradise”, which had audiences rolling with laughter in many venues in Leitrim, Roscommon and the historic production in New York.
Since early Autumn, the production team (led by Director Pat Duignan) and the cast have been pulling out all the stops to ensure that their play, the amazing farce “Cash on Delivery” by Michael Cooney, will have audiences everywhere rolling with laughter as they find themselves, like the performers in the Swan household, caught up and entrapped and mesmerised in a web and maze of deceit, bewilderment and confusion.
“What’s next? What’s what? Holy hell” befalls all the characters played by Seamus Gallagher, Stephen Feeney, Paula Loughlin, Joe Walpole, Andrew Redican, Margaret O’Rourke, Packie McPartlan, Thomas McHugh, Ethel McVeigh and Donna Keaney.
This years drama performances will be greatly enhanced by major stage and hall refurbishments.
The stage has been greatly extended and a complete new sat of flats, doors and lighting will give a more professional touch. For audience comfort, a new set of soft chairs have also been acquired by the Drama Group, which as well as providing entertainment, is most anxious to promote a most worthy setting for drama and theatre in Drumkeerin.
The play commences at 8.30pm on Friday and Sunday nights with a 9pm start on Saturday night.
Audiences are warned that if you miss the first five minutes of the play, you will be lost. As the group did last year, the play will start on time.
