Drama Time

After months of rehearsing, set designing & building, The Ballycogley Players are ready to hit the stage with this years 3 act production; 'The Cripple of Inishmaan'.

The play is a dark comedy penned by Martin McDonagh who links the story to the real life filming of the documentary Man of Aran. Set on the small Aran Islands community of Inishmaan off the Western Coast of Ireland in 1934, the inhabitants are excited to learn of a Hollywood film crew's arrival in neighbouring Inishmore to make a documentary about life on the islands.

Before The Players set out on their 3 act festival journey, director; Breda Hayes along with her cast & set crew will present this fantastic play in St.Michaels Hall, Thomas Street, Wexford on Friday 19th & Saturday 20th February at 8pm nightly. Admission is €10 at the door each night. We look forward to your support!
