The Matchmaker by JB Keane

14th September @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

€25 – €27

Norma Sheahan and Jon Kenny return to play a myriad of characters in this hilarious and earthy dramatic comedy, as Dicky Mick Dicky O’Connor strives to make matches for the lonely and lovelorn. JB Keane’s inimitable sense of “devilment” and wit are all evident as he delves into the longings, hungers, fears and foibles of these lonely country people, in a simpler time, when phones were few and far between and the only web was one left behind by spiders.
