It’s the Real McCoy this Friday and Saturday in An Grianan in Letterkenny!.
The play, which is set in rural Ireland in 1964, focuses on the life of 68 year-old Madge Mulloy (Eileen Slevin) who has spent more than 40 years struggling to survive on a small farm with her only daughter Maura.
Sadly, Madge has had to live with the fact that her husband Tom (Ollie Rouse) simply vanished within five months of marrying her, without trace. Madge was left to rear her only daughter Maura (Collette McHale) all on her own. The play centres on Tom’s homecoming and explanation of his disappearance.
What unfolds on stage is a combination of high drama, amazing Irish wit and a novel storyline that keeps the audience guessing right to the final minute as to what the final outcome will be.
There are seven characters in the production with two of Ireland’s nosiest neighbours constantly appearing in Madge’s kitchen, at the most inappropriate moments! Nora O’Hora (Deirdre O’Meara) and her daughter Cora (Mary Marren) definitely add spice to the mix! The local postman Martin Daly is played by Midwest Radio presenter Gerry Glennon and the local curate Fr. Michael McCoy is played by writer and director Tommy Marren.
This comedy has already enjoyed sell out shows in Ballyshannon, Mayo, Sligo, Galway, Mullingar, and a very successful run ‘across the pond’ in Chicago.
