Kilrush Drama Group

It is with joy and excitement that Kilrush Drama Group announces their first Stage Appearance since the beginning of the Pandemic. They will present a 1-Act Comedy called ‘Red Carnations’ by Glenn Hughes and directed by Mick Byrne at 8 p.m. on Friday, November 5, in St Brigid’s Hall, Carnew.

In this light, comedic play, a boy and a girl and a man engage in a very amusing trialogue near a park bench. This is a satire written with wit, humour and distinction and performed by Caitlin Clauson, Michael Dunbar and Timmy Connaughton. In the expert hands of director Mick, it is certainly a play not to miss.
