It’s supposed to be a day of special celebration as Mattie and Maggie Conway celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. However, few people know that they haven’t spoken a word to each other in ten years and when the local priest decides to surprise them by calling to their house to renew their marriage vows all hell breaks loose! It’s rip-roaring comedy as Tommy Marren brings to life the follow-up play to the hilarious It’s The Real McCoy. Set in rural Ireland in 1969 you should prepare yourself for another night of continuous laughter.

While others are preoccupied with cucumber sandwiches and railway cloakrooms, two minor characters from The Importance of Being Earnest are up to their necks in something else. A country rector and a governess are models of Victorian propriety in public. But in private? This is the play behind the play: a tale of blackmail, false identity ...and money.

The world-renowned Footsbarn revisits its internationally acclaimed production of MidSummer Night's Dream to create an evening of magic and comedy where the amateur troupe of rude mechanicals get embroiled in an argument between the King and Queen of the Fairies. From the moment you step inside the theatre, you are in a parallel universe, a place where fantastical creatures lurk, and the removal of the intrigues of the court and the lovers, allows for a special emphasis on the world of the groundlings and of the supernatural.
Since its foundation, Footsbarn has produced over 60 plays and has performed around the globe, becoming Europe’s leading travelling theatre ensemble.
This moving tribute to the show band era shares lost dreams and regrets yet within the drama there is nostalgia and laughter. You will laugh, cry, dance and sing and come away feeling a need to follow your dreams....no matter how crazy.

The Successful TD follows the Trials, Tribulations, misadventures and hilarious antics of Tull McAdoo as he seeks re-election to the Dail in the "October Elections”

Tull has roped in the help of his faithful Daughter Kate while his wife nurses her various ailments in bed or Lisdoonvarna , but his arch enemy Flannery the local school teacher plans to scupper the election for Tull…
“Any man with a vote is a man to be respected. I’ll play with them, lie to them, sing dumb about them while I have a chance of a vote. That’s my livelihood. Don’t give me no more stink about the truth. Christ told the truth and they crucified Him…”
Based on The Letters of A Successful TD and An Irish Minister of State by John B Keane.
