Donegal Drama Circle, in association with Donegal Bay and Blue Stacks Festival, will stage John B. Keane’s hilarious comedy, Moll, at the John Bosco Centre, Donegal Town this weekend, Friday to Sunday, nightly at 8.30pm.
Moll is a brilliant comedy set in a priests’ house, in 1970s rural Kerry. It enjoyed a hugely successful revival at The Gaeity Theatre in Dublin earlier this year, where its providence as the forerunner of the classic 1990s TV comedy Father Ted, was plain to be seen.
When Canon Pratt and his two curates, Father Brest and Father Loran, select Moll as their new housekeeper, little do they know that life is never going to be the same again!
Moll is on a mission and she wraps the Canon around her little finger and feeds him well, while starving the younger priests. Soon the Canon is promoted and one of the curates takes his place but its Moll who’s really running the show now. When it comes to the question of her pension, more chaos ensues – however, with the support of the Bishop, Moll proves to be an unstoppable force.
For this special Festival production, the part of Moll is played by Amanda Crawford with Richard Hurst as Canon Pratt. Conor Friery and Paddy Campbell play young curates Father Brest and Father Loran, Kathelln McCrudden is Bridín, while Sean McLoone plays the Bishop.
For a great night out, make your way to the John Bosco Centre, Donegal Town this weekend.
