Busy in rehearsals are Caroline Morgan (Joanie) and Kevin Ryan (Billy).

Nenagh Players return to stage

Nenagh Players are delighted to be getting back on stage after this strange and difficult time with two hilarious one-act plays at Nenagh Arts Centre from Thursday to Saturday, November 25 to 27.

The two one-act plays are The Lithium Waltz by Barry Mc Kinley and Last Tango in Little Grimley by David Tristram

The Lithium Waltz by Barry Mc Kinley is a black comedy set in a psychiatric hospital, which tells the tale of Billy Carson (played by Kevin Ryan). Billy is in for an assessment to determine whether this hospital should be his new home. While there he gets some useful dance tips from Tommy Tango (played by Seamus McCarthy) and his dance partner Lydia (played by Marie Nagle) learns about lies from the demon-with-the-clipboard Priscilla (played by Heather Broad), acquires a taste for ‘rocket-fuel’ from The Professor (played by Ronan Dodd) and is shown the ropes by know-it-all Joanie O’Reilly (played by Caroline Morgan) and directed by Kevin Whelan.

Last Tango in Little Grimley by David Tristram is the story of The Little Grimley Amateur Dramatic Society, which is in trouble. Membership has dwindled to four; Gordon, the chairman (played by Stuart Andrew),Bernard (played by Noel Stanley), Joyce (played by Noreen Kelly) and Margaret (played by Helen Kinsella) the audiences aren't much bigger, and if they don't come up with some rent money soon, they're going to be thrown out.

“There's only one thing that sells tickets these days,” argues Chairman Gordon, “sex!”

But how will the locals react to the promise of a sizzling sex comedy? All is revealed in this hilarious play directed by Heather Broad.


Performances at 8pm from November 25-27. Tickets: €10
