Drama buffs will be in for a treat next weekend when Barndance, a two-act romantic comedy by John Fraher, will be staged by Feohanagh Castlemahon Players from Limerick in Tooreen Community Hall on Saturday, March 29th.
Set in modern times, Barndance tells of the relationship between Barney Kelly and his father, who is known as “The Matador”.
The action centres around the construction of a new hay barn and the night of celebration to mark its completion. Romances of past and present unfold, while other relationships are discussed in detail.
Feohanagh Castlemahon Players was formed three years ago. Fronted and directed by Triona Quaid, the group commence rehearsals each September and put on our very successful shows between December and March, travelling to many parishes to entertain and fundraise for various charities.
Their first production was Many young men of Twenty, followed the next year by A Wake in the West. Barndance, claimed two awards in the West Limerick Drama Festival 2014 for best set design and best lighting.
All proceeds from this performance of Barndance in Tooreen will go to support Western Care Association local services and Tooreen Hurling Club. Doors open at 7 pm with the play commencing at 7.30pm.
Tickets €10, Students €5, are available from Tooreen Hurling Club Members, The Gem and Western Care Training Centre, Ballyhaunis.
