THEATRE: Aggy’s Anthem (Rehearsed Reading)
Wednesday 26th June, 2019 - 14:00 - 16:00FREE, booking advised
Rehearsed reading of new play by Newbridge-based actor/writer Mary Ryan.
Two worlds collide in the Meath Gaeltacht, when a song collector from inner city Dublin arrives for the local festival. Aggy (85) is a Kildare widow, determined to perform her songs and exhibit the lifetime of trophies she has won at local shows, despite neighbour Hunger Houlihan’s efforts to move her out.
The high profile cast includes acclaimed storyteller Nuala Hayes (Ros na Rún TG4, Glenroe RTE), Ciaran McMahon (Game of Thrones HBO, Vikings MGM, Into the Badlands AMC), Michael O’Sullivan (Fair City RTE, The Maamtrasna Murders TG4) and Caitríona Ní Chonaola (Na Cloigeanna ROSG, Aifric TG4 )
Please join us for a rehearsed reading of this brand new black comedy – and be the first audience to see Aggy in full flight!
After the reading, there will be an opportunity to meet the writer and actors and discuss the play.
