MULLINAVAT PARENTS ASSOCIATION-The parents association of St Beacons National School are holding a fundraiser in St Marys parish hall Slieverue on Friday 8th of March at 8pm. The fundraiser is in the shape of a play and will be performed by the Eigse players. The play is entitled “Nil by Mouth” and is a two act comedy set in a hospital in the south east which is normally run on well oiled wheels. Wards are called after well known poets and confusion abounds as the ward names and some patients names are the same and also because some of the patients are suffering from memory loss.
On the particular weekend in question due to understaffing a minor mistake triggers a remarkable chain of events. Trolleys go through the wards like buses and to add to the confusion a government inspector arrives to check the viability of the hospital. In a strange twist of events he finds himself with sleeves rolled up and caring for the patients instead of inspecting the premises and procedures. Events round of with resuscitation and a resurrection.
This is guaranteed to be a great night’s entertainment and the Parents association would be delighted with your support. Tickets are available at all the shops in the village and from any of the Parents association committee. There will be free refreshments served during the interval and all this will take place on Friday the 8th of March commencing at 8pm
