FOLLOWING on from its sell out success in Duagh and Listowel last year, the hilarious play 'The Pimple' makes its debut in Abbeydorney next weekend as a fundraiser for Killahan National School.
Penned by a publicity-shy writer who is identified only as 'The Scribe of Mweengwee,' the story follows the travails of John Joe Gilhooley who is sorely afflicted by a persistent protrusion in the nether regions. His wife Maggie May is at her wit's end, driven mad with worry about her husband's ailment. Friends, neighbours and a range of professionals are consulted, with hilarious consequences. A great night's entertainment is promised, which will bring together the combined talents of well known
personalities from Abbeydorney. Experienced actress Siobhan Keane will share the stage with local stalwarts Brendan O Halloran, John Lawlor and John Breen. Sonny Egan will add his many and varied talents to the production and all will be joined by Killahan NS principal Gerard Doyle who is perfecting his German accent for the performance.
Maura O'Sullivan, who teaches in Killahan NS will represent the interests of alternative medicine while Killahan NS secretary, Mary Nolan will take on the role of receptionist at the surgery. Cecelia Conway, meanwhile, will play the part of the consultant's very happy wife. The play comes to Abbeydorney on Friday, February 8 and Sunday, February 10 at 8pm.
