PITY about the weather, recession, budget and so on ... but thank goodness for the Ballyclough based Harbour Players who stage their annual production in Ballyclough Community Centre next week.
The Players interpretation of the farcical 'Drinking Habits' is sure to attract sell out audiences to the North Cork village.
With plots and twists galore, 'Drinking Habits', written by Tom Smith, dwells on accusations, mistaken identities and romance. The delightful comedy centres on two nuns secretly bootlegging wine to keep their convent doors open. Two reporters go undercover as a nun and a priest and the addition of a nun to the convent spurs paranoia throughout the convent in hilarious plots.
"The play deserves to be seen for its a talented cast and funny plot, where the audience can just come out and have a good laugh," said producer Michael Guerin from Newmarket, who is thrilled with the enthusiasm of all associated with the presentation.
In store is a sure cure for those winter nights. This is a talented cast with familiar faces on board while behind the senes is a dedicated back stage crew under Jennifer O'Mahony,
"To work with the Ballyclough group is a pleasure and its great to see a mix of old and new faces in the cast. That's the lifeblood for any drama group such as the Harbour Players to succeed," said Mr Guerin.
Patrons can catch up with 'Drinking Habits' from November 22-25 in addition to shows from November 29 to December 1 at Ballyclough Community Centre nightly at 8pm. Prebooking is advisable, tickets can be obtained from Albany Homes Decor, Mallow or Fitzgerald's Shop, Ballyclough.
