THE COLLEEN BAWN
Love triangles, dark deeds and a load of old blarney…
When Hardress Cregans family falls on hard times, only his marriage to a wealthy heiress, Anne Chute, can save them from ruin. But theres a snag – Hardress is already secretly married to the beautiful, and not so wealthy, Eily OConnor; and Anne is in love with someone else, Hardress best friend Kyrle. Will love win over money? Will a murderous plot succeed? And can they all live happily ever after?
This summer the classic Irish tale of The Colleen Bawn is brought vividly to life and right in to the 21st Century in this lively and entertaining production from director Jimmy Fay (Playboy of the Western World, Ross OCarroll Kelly: Last Days of the Celtic Tiger)
There will be a post show discussion with Willie White (Artistic Director, Project Arts Centre & co-producer of The Colleen Bawn), Jimmy Fay (Director) and Sara Keating (Journalist) following the performance on Wednesday 28 July 2010.
