Donabate show is a success

Talented members of Donabate Dramatic Society are celebrating after their latest production was another wonderful success.

The wonderful cast, a blend of experienced actors and new talents, produced a wonderful show during its three-night run.

The staging of The Trappe family by Seamus O'Rourke was well received by the audience at Donabate Community College.

The plays tells the story of the Trappe family. Sylvester Trappe fell off his garage roof five years ago and died.

Every year since then his wife drags her three sons and one daughter up to the same rooftop to commemorate his death and some of his life.

This play is about a family in the northwest of Ireland on a rooftop in 2007 looking out over the town and themselves. So much has changed, so much has not…

Among the cast were Noelle Corcoran, Julian Nolan, Michael O'Dea, Michael Keogh and Lorraine Halpin.

The play was it was directed by Lisa Buckley.
