Sharon's Grave wows audiences at theatre
Published 13/02/2014 | 05:26
The Shoestring Theatre Company's production of Sharon's Grave is delighting audiences at the Schoolyard Theatre and the audiences have given the cast many standing ovations in appreciation of their outstanding acting in the John B. Keane classic.
Director Kevin O'Shea has assembled a delightful blend of experienced actors and newcomers to the stage, the latter fully justifying the confidence which the director has placed in them.
Katie Holly as Trassie works brilliantly with newcomer Seamus Hunter as Peadar Minogue, while Martin Hennessy as the evil cripple, Dinzie, and Jack, his unfortunate 'pony' brother, played by Ciaran McCarthy (another newcomer to the Shoestring), give tremendous performances.
Ger Liston as Pats Bo Bwee and Gerard Roche as Tom Shawn bring out the musicality of the Keane language beautifully, while Mark Griffin is a competent Neelus.
Margie Nagle as Miss Dee, the prim and proper teacher, Billy O'Brien as Donal Conlee and the keeners round off a great cast in an excellent presentation.
The play continues this Thursday evening and all this weekend and every weekend in February. Booking is at 087-2530955
