Ennis Players take one-act shows on the road this weekend

ENNIS Players are going on tour. Due to popular demand and having performed a completely sold out Supper-theatre run in The Old Ground Hotel, Ennis Players have announced a very special performance of ‘One-Acts on Tour’ in North Clare this weekend.

The Players will perform two one-act plays in Hotel Doolin on Sunday, November 27. Speaking about the event, Mary Curley, Chairperson, said, “We in Ennis Players are delighted with the return of our very popular one-act season, as we have missed our audiences for the past two years, and look forward to welcoming the people of Clare and further afield to our performances.”

The Players will take to the stage performing Elysium Nevada by Barry McKinley and Trapped by Barry Woods.

Set in a retirement village in the sweltering Nevada desert, Elysium Nevada by Barry McKinley tells of two residents reflections on life, youth and how they got there.

They are joined by a mysteriously silent woman whose presence adds an entirely new dimensions to the discussion. Directed by Saoirse Byrne, and features Hugh Gallagher as Bob, Conor Lynch as Mike and Amy McEnnis as Constance. 

Trapped sees Faye respond to a distressed phonecall from her best friend and they discover information that is both profound and life changing.

This is a ten minute play about the unexpected parts that people play in life.  Directed by Joe Moran and features Nerys Garfield, Conor Clohessy and Mike Higgins. 

‘One-Acts on Tour’ takes place on November 27, in Hotel Doolin Doolin, County Clare and is suitable for audiences aged 15 plus.
