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.
