SHE spent most of January filming her debut movie with Hollywood stars Toni Collette and Jack Raynor, but Moyvane's Katie Galvin has now tuned her hand at writing for the stage, the fruits of which she will showcase to the public this weekend.

Katie, who will soon hit the big screen in Gerard Barrett's latest movie Glassland, will debut her first play 'What Love Is, A Farmers Version' at the Marion Hall Movane, this Friday night, March 21.

Co-directed by Katie and Aine Cronin, it tells the story of a farming bachelor living at home with his mother in the 1980s, who is looking for love. He arranges a date with a woman, but the question is whether that date will go according to plan. Will she fall for him or run away?

Katie has enlisted her fellow Boro Players cast members Donie Enright, Aine Cronin, Jamie Vaughan, James Fogarty and Jennifer Kennelly to bring the story to life, and admits she is a little nervous writing, directing and having a starring role.

"I wrote it myself and I am co-directing it with Aine Cronin, but seeing as it's the first time writing a play I'm kind of nervous about it," Katie said, adding that proceeds of the evening will go to the Donal Walsh #livelife Foundation and the Irish Cancer Society.

There will also be traditional music and lots of spot prizes on the night.

Tickets will be on sale on the night are €10 and doors open at 7.30pm.
