CASTLEBLAYNEY HURLING CLUB PRESENT

ST. MUNGO’S

Once officially the worst Gaelic football team in Ireland St Mungo’s have turned everything around. They are climbing up the league, the Mini-Mungo’s are blitzing blitzes all over Ulster and the new Ladies team are quickly gaining a reputation for being anything but ladylike on the pitch.

Plans for the club’s centenary celebrations are in full swing, when a clash of egos in the committee leads to that most Irish of problems; a split.

The good folk of Luganulk try to mediate, but before long they are embroiled in a vicious circle of internecine slagging and dirty looks at mass. They would cross the street to avoid each other, if there was a street.

To the joyous astonishment of their heartless next-door neighbours and ruthless enemies St Ergnot’s, St Mungo’s begin a war within themselves.  A war with no winners. A war with only losers. A losers’ war with no winners… only losers.

What they need is a hero. Someone to save the day. Someone to save St Mungo’s. Again.

Tickets available from Iontas Box Office.  Call 042 97400/401 to secure yours.

Date: Thursday 1st February                      Time: 8pm                             Tickets: €20

SOMEONE WHO'LL WATCH OVER ME

SOMEONE WHO'LL WATCH OVER ME
SOMEONE WHO'LL WATCH OVER ME

A DECADENT THEATRE PRODUCTION

WRITTEN BY FRANK McGUINNESS

“We are in a decidedly perilous position, to put it mildly”’
Adam, an American doctor, Edward, an Irish journalist, and Michael, an English academic, have little to unite them beyond being human in the same small space. Yet somehow, together, they determine to ward off madness and forestall despair.
Somewhere lurk their unseen captors yet, in the cell, there are stories of adventure and love, there is song and laughter, and even a surge of writing, cocktail-drinking and movie-making.
Inspired by the abduction of Brian Keenan taken hostage in Lebanon in the 1980s, Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me is playwright Frank McGuinness’s hymn to the defiant power of the human spirit and the creative imagination.

PRODUCTION SUPPORTED BY THE ARTS COUNCIL

Tickets €18/16
