Green & Blue

Green and Blue, in conjunction with The Glens Centre, written by Laurence McKeown comes to The Glens Centre on Tuesday, April 17th.

Green & Blue explores painful and humorous realities faced by the individuals who patrolled the border during the conflict in and about Northern Ireland.

Based on an oral archive of RUC and An Garda Síochána officers, the production fuses theatre and film to look at the person behind the uniform.

After the one hour performance there will be an opportunity to engage with the Playwright Laurence McKeown and Director Paula McFetridge about the play.

"At one point we took on a role that became an identity and that identity now defines us. We're a uniform, not real people".

The Importance of Being Earnest by the Lough Gill Players

The Lough Gill Players are delighted to present the classic comedy "The Importance of Being Earnest" by Oscar Wilde.

It is being staged in the Glens Centre, Manorhamilton on April 11th and 12th at 8:30pm.

It is the story of two bachelors, John "Jack" Worthing and Algernon "Algy" Moncrieff who create alter egos to escape their tiresome lives.

In their attempts to win the hearts of two women who, conveniently, claim to only love men called Ernest, the pair struggle to keep up with their own stories and become tangled in a tale of deception, disguise and misadventure.

In this elaborately plotted classic that ridicules Victorian manners and sensibilities and where no one seems to be who they say they are, we are introduced to the art of bunburying, cucumber sandwiches, the formidable Lady Bracknell and the difficulty of producing parents when ones first memories are of the cloakroom in Victoria station.

The Lough Gill Players Annual appearance in The Glens Centre promises to be a wonderful evenings entertainment.

So come along and immerse yourself in Oscar Wilde's " Trivial Comedy for Serious People".

Tickets €15/12. The Glens Centre, New Line, Manorhamilton, Co. Leitrim.Phone (071) 9855833 or visit www.theglenscentre.com.
