Kilmeen Drama Group’s summer comedy ‘It’s The Real McCoy’ is currently being staged in St Mary’s Theatre, Rossmore.

The show commenced on July 17 and continues every Thursday throughout August. This new offering, written by Tommy Marren, promises to be every bit as good as last year’s ‘A Wake in the West’ and the previous year’s ‘Thy Will Be Done’.

Once again Gerard Finn is the play Director, with several members of the cast and crew from previous successful plays still involved.

Already being hailed as one of the funniest new Irish comedy plays to hit the stage, ‘It’s The Real McCoy’ is not to be missed. Set in rural Ireland in the mid 1960s, its main character is Madge Molloy (played by Sheila Wall) who has spent over 40 years of her life in despair following the disappearance of her husband for no apparent reason.

The new parish curate Fr. Michael McCoy (played by newcomer Ian Flavin) brings news about her husband Tom (Michael O’Mahony) who wishes to return to explain why he left. However, Madge has to contend with the fact that her only child Maura (played by Crona McCarthy) has fallen in love with the local postman Martin Daly (played by Michael Crowley) and she doesn’t approve. She also has regular full-blown confrontations with the two nosiest neighbours in Ireland (Rosarie Murphy and Catherine Deasy).

The play is packed with plots, two love stories, a confused curate, a gormless postman and a woman who has a lot of anger and frustration to release…it’s great fun!

Every Thursday in Rossmore at 8pm. Booking advisable 086 4481086.

The Cast of Harold Pinter’s ‘No Man’s Land’ are on their way to the All-Ireland finals, having won 26 awards, including five best of Festivals, at the Amateur Drama League of Ireland annual three act festivals. The play ‘No Man’s Land, by Harold Pinter, the Nobel Prize Winning Author is directed by Jennifer Williams.

One last opportunity to view this multi award winning play at Skibbereen Town Hall, on Saturday 14th of April, before the finals.

Having met by chance in a pub, two aging writers continue a long night of drinking and reminiscing in a stately London home. As the night wears on, their conversation wanders through memories long forgotten or invented. Is their encounter real or a delusion? Are they strangers or do they share a past history? When unexpected guests intrude upon an increasingly surreal evening, the atmosphere quickly changes from friendly to threatening, and the encounter becomes a game of survival.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by emailing schulldramagroup@gmail.com
