Graignamanagh gets a little of Roddy Doyle this week.
The town’s Spark Productions delve into the writer’s Brownbread, which tells of three unemployed guys who stumble across a gun while out playing golf. This leads to a myriad of events, not least a decision to rob a bishop and keep him hostage.
Set in Barrytown, Dublin, in 1987, this fast-paced and hilarious comedy has been directed by Kelly-Ann Whelan and stars Thomas Drennan, James Kilbride, Adrian Kavanagh, Mark Bolger, David Behan, Jim Kielty, Jackie Douglas, Edel Bolger, Eoin McNamara and Paul Hickey as The Bishop.
Be advised that strong language is used throughout. It runs in the Abbey Hall Graignamanagh from today (Wednesday) to Saturday with doors opening each evening from 7.30pm. Tickets cost €7.
