This lovely Comedy Drama impressed all who attended the opening performance in St Mary’s Theatre last week.
Set in an Ireland of 30-years-ago, the play tells the story of two brothers who haven’t spoken to each other for forty years.
It is a tale of a failed marriage of one of the brothers and his wife’s departure to New York where she gives birth to their son.
The other brother now spends his days fishing and is cared for by a local woman who is a busybody but has his best interests at heart and does his housekeeping.
Veteran Kilmeen actor Denis McCarthy gives a sterling performance in the hugely demanding role of Jack Griffin and brings great feeling and fun to the part.
Co-star, newcomer to Kilmeen Drama Group, Sheila Wall, is a revelation as Bridie, the home help.
She adds hugely to the successful Kilmeen acting stable and judging by her debut the theatrical future looks bright for this Kilbrittain lady.
Denis O’Sullivan, already the holder of major awards at All Ireland level and recently starring in The Weir and Disco Pigs, is superb as the emigrant nephew Martin.
A versatile and talented young actor, Denis plays with great confidence and aplomb.
Christy O’Sullivan completes the tight cast with an excellent portrayal of the troubled and aggressive Peter.
“It’s a privilege to work with this team, each totally committed and focussed and best of all we’re enjoying it immensely,” said director Gerard Finn.
