Caustic, Sobering and Hilariously Funny! – Brand New Play at Millennium Forum
She’s back! Irene Melaugh returns to the Millennium Forum next week with the second in her trilogy from the ‘Dumped Divorcee’ stables – ‘The Dumped Divorcee Support Group Rides Again!’ and it’s a scream!
On at the Forum for four nights starting Wednesday, January 31st, the follow-on from the original critically acclaimed show, with a cast that includes some ‘new and outrageous characters’, according to Irene.
‘The Dumped Divorcee Support Group’ saw the divorcees ride off into the sunset with their new partners to live happily ever after. Right? Wrong!
Part one of the trilogy saw the three childhood friends start another chapter in their lives with new partners.
But Rosie and Eileen are now homeless and now living with Maura in her two bedroomed house and the situation is explosive. Eileen has been de-robed and thrown out of the convent. Rosie has left her man because he was wearing out all her clothes. And Eugene. . . . . well, there’s another story! Looking forward to the first night, the lady herself said this one will have everything and even a Roger will make an appearance!
“I really had a ball writing The Dumped Divorcee Support Group Rides Again” said Irene. “It’s a story that more and more people can identify with. A story of divorce, of being thrown back out there into the jungle of dating among the wild and idiotic characters these less than lucky women attract.”
“Yes, the Three Degrees – Maura, Rosie, Eileen and the increasingly desperate Eugene decide to give The Dumped Divorcee Support Group one more try. It couldn’t be any worse than the first disaster. Could it?’’ laughs Irene.
In a word, yes! The cow-clapped Roger-Over-And-Out reappears from Donegal and attempts to sweep Maura off her feet. Eileen’s ex-husband Jack has decided that even though he’s had a sex change and is now Jacklyn, he wants Eileen back!
As for Rosie, she lives in the hope that just one normal man will find his way to the group.
So, for a great night’s craic and side-splitting comedy why not come along to the Millennium Forum, Wednesday-Saturday, 31st Jan.-3rd February.
The Dumped Divorcee Support Group Rides Again performs at the Millennium Forum from Wed 31st Jan to Sat 3rd February. Tickets are now on sale from the Box Office. Telephone 71 264455 or visit www.millenniumforum.co.uk for bookings.
