‘The Determinator

Written by John McManus
Directed by Padraic McIntyre
Performed by Charlie McGuinness
Play Synopsis
Herbie Hoctor has just been trying to keep his head above water like any other halfway civilized human being but it’s difficult to keep going when your landlord has given you notice to quit; when your nemesis and neighbour is threatening you with the Guards; when you’ve been fired from your job for refusing to sing the Happy Birthday song; when there’s a dead body lying under your bedroom floor and – worst of all – when you’ve just discovered that your ex-girlfriend, the love of your life, your soulmate, your sweet little heart’s desire, your pretty little nasturtium… is getting married… tomorrow… in New York City beyond in America country…
‘Lockdown in Boyle’
Written by David Tristram
Directed by Sinead Quinn
Performed by The Breffni Players
Aoife Roddy, Eithne Quinn, Martin Branagan and Michael McLoughlin
The Breffni Players are back with David Tristram’s hilarious one act comedy, ’Lockdown in Leitrim’. This comedy follows the antics of hapless Amateur Drama group planning their comeback production when restrictions ease.
Play Synopsis
Set in Lockdown, Chairman Gordon calls an emergency meeting with the only three members in attendance diva-like Margaret, affable Bernard and ditsy Joyce to discuss their next production. Tristram’s play is packed full of laughs while reminding us what a devastating effect the pandemic had on the  Arts.
