AN award-winning dark comedy, written, developed and produced in Killarney, is currently representing Kerry in the All-Ireland One-Act Drama Festival.

The play, Dead Man’s Bells, a gothic rural tale told by unreliable narrators, will be staged in Killarney Avenue Hotel on Monday, November 11 with the cast and crew excited to being the humour and quick wit to a local audience,

Dead Man’s Bells recently performed in the Killmallock One-Act Festival where playwright, Méabh de Brún, was awarded the adjudicator’s trophy for best writing and Réidín O’Connor was nominated for best actress.

Recently staged in Kenmare to a sellout crowd, the play is a tale of three sisters, one brother, and a farm that’s up for grabs. Communally woven, it explores the shared chorus of siblinghood and the weight of unspoken family secrets. 

Directed by Aisling O’Sullivan Darcy, Dead Man’s Bells boasts a cast of three women who balance the dark and the craic on stage for an hour of familial bickering and twisting tales. It features Reidín O’Connor, Katie Ryan and Méabh de Brún, with Kieran Summers on lighting.

Tickets for the Killarney performance, available at the door, are €10.00 or forward a reservation to The curtain will rise at 7.30pm.
