For one night only this Saturday in the Mill Theatre, Dundrum, Dalkey Players presents their RTE All Ireland Drama Festival Winning Play Dead Man’s Cellphone with proceeds going to Barnardo’s and Children’s Hospital Ireland.
Following our 2016 All Ireland Drama Festival Runner- up success, Dalkey Players invite you to come and support our Autumn Production.
The talented cast includes 2016 award winners Alan Nuzum (winner of 4 best supporting actor awards this year) John Walsh one of our longest standing members, Alan Stewart, ( 2 One Act acting awards) plus stalwart members Geraldine McGrath, Colm Kearns, Cyrileen Power plus newcomers Emmet Driver and Roisin Scully .
Hugh Leonard would have been 90 years old in November this year, so his Tony Award winning Play DA” seemed an appropriate way to bring him back to his roots. We look forward to seeing you and some friends during the run.
We are delighted to share the results of the 8 Festivals in which we participated and to thank once more all who supported us and sponsored us along the way. Thanks also to all the Festivals for their wonderful hospitality. This means that we have qualified for the Finals of the 2016 RTE All-Ireland Drama Festival in Athlone!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
