‘The Playboy of the Western World’ will be performed in the Lucan Spa Hotel between May 18 and 21, writes Rachel Cunningham.

The cast of 11 is working hard and enjoying the rehearsals under the direction of Donal Downes, as they learn the fabulous poetry and wonderful language that is particular to John Millington Synge’s writing.

Aoife Gately, who has taken on the role of Pegeen Mike, is said to be taking on the role with “great courage and integrity”, while Brian Whitney is apparently “thoroughly absorbed in becoming the ‘larger than life’ playboy”.

More details on tickets and times will be shared over the coming weeks. For further queries, contact Jack (0860666626), Bernie (0864015794) and Donal (0879658838).
