HaggleRock Theatre Group are making final preparations to stage their first production ‘Only An Hour From Dublin’ written by Grainne Jordan, directed by Pat Cleary and produced by Brigitte Nelson on Friday 27th & Saturday 28th March in the Geraldines’ Club rooms, Haggardstown.
Only an Hour from Dublin is a two act comedy based on a Dublin family from the Liberties who take over a B & B in a fictional town only an hour from the capital. Problems arise when a local auctioneer wants them to sell the estate to make a financial gain.
The cast includes; Tom Doonan, Patricia Reynolds, Joan Wilson, Frank McGrath, John Tumilty, Suzanne Kavanagh, Anne Donaghy, Brian McElroy, Margaret Gamble, Eimear Boyle & Fiona O’Murchu.
Director, Pat Cleary said 'Rehearsals are going great and the play is really coming together. It's great craic with loads of laughs and mystery! The cast have embraced their roles and are improving with each rehearsal. By the end of March, they'll be just perfect. Overall, I reckon, anybody who attends is in for a fun filled evening'.
In addition to the cast, there is a strong team in the background helping to make this a success, by building & designing sets, making costumes, testing sound & lighting, finding props and marketing the event, the teams include; Eileen Munnelly, Amy Galligan, Anne Callan, Tom Ridgeway, Jack Montgomery, Maeve Ahern, Mary Reilly, Karen Maguire, Caraline Whittingham, Michelle Reidy & Noleen Gernon.
Chairman, Patricia Reynolds quoted ‘I am very proud of HaggleRock Theatre Group, the team are totally committed to making this venture a huge success. I do hope the people will come along and support us on as it is hoped that some of the proceeds of the two nights will be allocated back into the community'.
Only An Hour From Dublin was written by Grainne Jordan, a native of County Louth, Grainne quoted I'm deeply honoured that HaggleRock is staging my play, and look forward to seeing the production. I wish the cast and crew every success. My sister Eimear Boyle will be taking on the role of "Nancy", which adds to the excitement on my part! My family are based in Ardee, and I have a brother living in Blackrock so it's a bit of a homecoming for the play!
Only An Hour From Dublin will take place on Friday 27th & Saturday 28th March at 8 pm in The Geraldines’ Club Rooms, Haggardstown - a full bar will be available on both nights. Tickets can be purchased for €10 each through cast or committee members, in B.H.K. Credit Union, St. Francis N.S., Blackrock, or by calling Amy on 086 226 8606.
