Kilrush Drama Group back on stage

By Dan Walsh

There is palpable joy and excitement as Kilrush Drama Group embarks on its first stage performance since the beginning of the pandemic and it happens in St. Brigid’s Hall, Carnew, tonight (Friday).

The presentation is a One-Act Comedy called Red Carnations by Glenn Hughes directed by Mick Byrne and curtains up at 8pm.

In this light, comedic play, a boy, a girl, and a man engage in a very amusing trialogue near a park bench. This is a satire written with wit, humour and distinction and performed by Caitlin Clauson, Michael Dunbar and Timmy Connaughton.

In the expert hands of award-winning director Mick Byrne, it is certainly a play not to miss. 

The group will travel with the play on the One-Act Festival Circuit to festivals in Cavan, Cork, Carrigallen, Kiltimagh and Gorey.

Tonight’s performance will be followed by a short concert, featuring the McCabe Family, who, following their success on TG4’s Realta agus Gaolta’s- Most Talented Family are in high demand. Also performing in the concert are the talented, PJ Arthur, Lar White and Ellie Willoughby

This amateur production of Red Carnations is presented by arrangement with Concorde Theatrical Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd.
