Brothers of the Brush

The Corn Mill Theatre Group presents a comedy Brothers of the Brush by Jimmy Murphy and directed by Seán McIntyre on Thursday 28 February and Friday 1 & Saturday 2 March 2013. Brothers of the Brush tell how house-painters, patching over the cracks of an old house, misuse each other for their own advantage. In a world blighted by economic recession, with workers losing faith in old ideologies, Brothers of the Brush demonstrates just how fragile allegiances are when personal interests are at stake. Doors open at 8:00pm and show starts at 8:30pm. Booking at 049-4339612 or
