Last performance

Last performance

Due to popular demand Drumkeerin Drama Group is putting on one last performance of their much acclaimed production of Bernard Farrell’s great comedy drama ‘Say Cheese’ on Friday night, 17th May in Drumkeerin Community Centre commencing at 8.30pm. Doors open at 7.45pm. Already the play has attracted huge audiences over the performances. The Group very much regrets that so many had to be turned away from the door on the Sunday night as the Centre was full. So those who were disappointed on that night will have the opportunity to enjoy this outstanding production of comedy, drama and suspense as Bridie and Valentine, Ireland’s Happiest Couple, relive their wedding of thirty years earlier and the murky secrets as the action unfolds.
