By Dan Walsh

Drama-lovers in North Wexford and beyond are being treated to a rare theatrical event this summer- a live outdoor theatre performance. At a time when live theatre is a rarity, this is certainly a quality show not to be missed!

Coolgreany Drama has been presenting (in accordance with Covid-19 health and safety guidelines) the full-length comedy drama Hooked by Gillian Grattan in the unique outdoor surroundings of the beautiful Ram House Gardens in the north Wexford village.

Ram House Gardens, lovingly tended by Lolo Stevens, is a delightful summer setting for this production. It is spread over two acres and features in many major gardens of Ireland guides.

Hooked is a three-handed comedy drama in which young Dubliner Lydia’s move to a small country village leads to an unexpected chain of events, exposing many local secrets and lies.

Directed by Sally Stevens and featuring Norah Finn, Carl Nuzum and Niamh Fleming, Hooked has proved a huge hit with audiences. It was performed regularly throughout July and after a short break has returned for August performances. Remaining dates are: Saturdays and Sundays at 4pm on August,15, 16, 22 and 23 and Thursday evening, August 20.

One of the few theatre performances taking place anywhere in the country.

To book tickets on Eventbrite for the remaining shows Google Hooked Coolgreany. Admission is €12 plus Eventbrite booking fee. For further queries about the show phone: 087 2411926.

The performance lasts for approximately 90 minutes with no interval. Due to Covid restrictions there are no toilet facilities.
