The newly refurbished Fenagh Community Centre will host it’s first play ‘A Lock of Fierce Roars’ by John McManus on Friday, February 21 at 8.30pm.
The Fenagh Community centre was refurbished at a cost of €450,000. All proceeds from the play go towards running costs of Community Centre.
The production is set in rural Ireland in 2001, the play centres on a couple who have being trying to groom an elderly neighbour into leaving them his fortune, which is hidden under the floorboards.
He’s no fool, however, and things come to a head when he is faced with declaring his money on account of the Euro changeover. Throw in a bungled robbery, the shenanigans of the sympathetic youngster Davy and McManus’s unique brand of mischief and you’ve got an outrageous comedy!
John McManus is from Ballyconnell in Co. Cavan. His first play won the RTE P. J. O’Connor Award. His play ‘The Quare Land’ toured with Moth Productions in autumn 2013. He is currently on the New Playwrights Programme at the Abbey Theatre.
