Nobody is Talking to Me

presented by The Crokey Hill Club

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.

Tuesday 6 & Wednesday 7 February, 8pm, €18

If We Got Some More Cocaine I Could Show You How I Love You

The debut play by Clare playwright John O’Donovan

Ennis. Halloween. There’s a party to get to and Mikey and Casey have everything they need….Booze. Cash. Drugs. Each other.
The only problem is they’re stuck. Stuck on a roof. Stuck together. And as they wait for the guards to stop circling the house, they find out there are some truths you can’t climb down from.
A raucous and unlikely romantic drama, twenty feet up.
Following a sold out run in London, this award-winning play by John O'Donovan comes home to Ennis.
