Ennis Players’ Annual Supper Theatre is back with three offerings to whet your theatrical appetite this November. Rehearsals are well underway for this four-night production, offering the finest of theatre and the finest of food in the surrounds of the Old Ground Hotel, Ennis. This year’s production will showcase the following performances:
Meeting Miss Ireland by Rosemary Jenkinson
Kathy Ireland is desperate to find a man – and to lose her pot-dealing brother. Set in Belfast in the noughties, Meeting Miss Ireland is a comedy about the typical brother-sister dynamic and the rage that only a sibling can bring out in you! Directed by Laura O’Brien, starring Sinéad Clancy and Conor Clohessy.
A Galway Girl by Geraldine Aron
This one act play depicts the life of a rural Irish wife in the 1950s. Maisie and her husband Dermot show us the wonderful rollercoaster the life of a married couple. From loving moments and bickering Geraldine Aron captures the reality that was the married life in 1950 Ireland. Directed by Jackie Scanlan, Dermot and Maisie will be played by John Lillis and Maeve Plunkett.
The Well Packed Picnic by Síne Friel
A short play about an ordinary retired couple, Margaret & Frank choosing the ideal secluded location for a picnic, and more. With Margaret, played by Gillian Dunphy, no stranger to Supper Theatre, and Frank, played by Kieran Martin, first time to thread the boards with EP, not all is quite what it seems. Be advised retirement isn’t just drifting into the sunset. Directed by Joe Moran.
