John B. Keane's evergreen play 'Sive' opens the festival that will include works from other popular playwrights such as Dermot Bolger (From these Green Heights), Brian Friel (Dancing at Lughnasa), Roddy Doyle (War), Marina Carr (By the Bog of Cats) and Jimmy Murphy's 'The Hen Night Epiphany', Callaghan's Place (John McDwyer), Yasmin Reza (God of Carnage), Ray Cooney and John Chapman (Not Now Darling).

The adjudicator this year is Donal Courtney, A.D.A. There are four plays in the open section and five groups will contest the confined section. Curtain-up is at 8.15pm each night except on the final night, Saturday March 23, when the play begins at 7.30pm to facilitate the final adjudication and the presentation of awards to the visiting groups.

Admission is €15, concession €10 and a season ticket costs €60. Booking is at the Oriel, Main Street Charleville, telephone 063-81824.
