Factory Girls by Frank
McGuiness, Ardhowen Theatre, Friday 8th March, performed by Dunmore
Amateur Dramatic Society. Set in the
recessionary early 1980’s The Factory Girls tells the story of five women
facing the threat of redundancy, who stage a lock-in in a shirt factory in Co.
Donegal. As their protest continues the women learn more about each other and
themselves as they explore their anger, courage and compassion. The play was the stunning debut of Frank
McGuinness, one of Ireland’s greatest living playwrights, and was first
produced in 1982. Funny, engaging and moving.

family history. Me, Mum & The Patriarchy is a witty one woman show that

The sensational new
Stage Musical “My Sweetheart and Me” is a rip-roaring,
funny romantic comedy set during the Summer of Love 1967, in and around
a popular cornerstone of the community Public house (The Suntree bar)
in the fictional sleepy town of Cheerysville, Ireland. Seen
through a nostalgic lens, the story centres around two single love struck
thirtysomethings, as they haphazardly struggle against all the odds, to get
their new found love for one another off the ground. Theatre at the Mill, 8th – 9th March.
Fresh from two
consecutive years at the Edinburgh Fringe, join award-winning drumming comedy
performer Paul Richards as he struggles to control his very merry ‘choir’ of
comedians in their bid to tell you the entire history of pop music in just 90
minutes. Packed with special guests and
surprises, this gloriously messy singalong show will find our
loveable/shambolic ensemble attempt to perform 62 songs in an hour and a half
with a whole host of inevitable distractions…what could possibly go wrong?
Crescent Arts Centre, Saturday 9th March.
