Cornermen plays Skerries

Not long after their successful production of A View from the Bridge, Skerries Theatre Group are at it again in their current production of Cornermen by Oli Forsyth.

Mickey and his team of cornermen never seem to have much luck in the boxing world.

The fighters they manage always end up losing and, after a disastrous last outing, no one wants to work with them.

All that changes when they sign Sid, a young boxer whose winning ways catapult them into a world of success they've never had before.

However, you can't win them all.

Soon Mickey has to choose between the life he's enjoying, and the wellbeing of his young charge.

The play runs in the Little Theatre Wednesdays to Saturdays from now until April 13.

The talented cast are Derek Marry (A View from the Bridge, The Ladykillers), Paul Canning (He Loves Me / Not), Dave McEvoy (God of Carnage, Arrested Development) and newcomer Jack O'Driscoll.

The show is directed by Marie Kelly (Plaza Suite, According to Hoyle, God of Carnage, Jumpers for Goalposts).

The Proceeds of Opening Night last week, went to Skerries Hockey Club.

Tickets €12/€10 from Skerries Bookshop or by ringing (or better still, texting) 087 2105432.

This one is not to be missed.
