After months of rehearsing, set designing and building, The Ballycogley Players are ready to with this year's three-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.
Before 'The Players' set out on their three-act festival journey, director Breda Hayes with her cast and set crew will present their play in St Michaels Hall, Thomas Street, Wexford on Friday and Saturday, February 19 and 20, at 8 p.m. Admission is €10 at the door each night.
The cast includes Sean Carthy, Kathleen Tierney, Chris Maddock - Bobbybabby, Rachel Murphy - Helen McCormick, Catherine Murphy, Paddy McGuire, Bartley McCormick, Con Doyle and Mary Doyle.
