Four nights of guaranteed comedy are on the cards at St Mogue's Hall in Inch this month as Coolgreany Drama presents two one-act plays.

Preparations are under way for 'Mr Foot' and 'The Kidderminster Affair', which will take place from Thursday, October 4, until Sunday, October 7, at 8 p.m.

'Mr Foot' is an inventive and engaging comedy by Michael Frayn. Directed by Sally Stevens, it features actors Maggie Murphy and Niall Hunter.

Niall, who is also PRO for Coolgreany Drama Group, said the production of 'Mr Foot' is Coolgreany's entry on the All-Ireland One Act Circuit this year.

'Coolgreany won last year's All Ireland One Act Confined Drama competition,' added Niall.

The comedy evening also includes 'The Kidderminster Affair' by Alan Ayckbourn, a one-act frivolous comedy, based at a barbecue, of fun, infidelity and food fights. It is directed by Norah Finn and includes actors Frank Duffy, Billy Hutchinson, Fiona Cooney O'Gorman and Sheila O'Kelly.

'This will be the only opportunity to see these great productions locally before they hit the road,' said Niall.

Tickets are €10 and available on the door or call 087 239 3651 for bookings.
