The Real McCoy is heading for Scart

The cast of It’s the Real McCoy ready for the big production in Scartaglen

THE Real McCoy will take to the stage in Scartaglen this weekend and it’s an occasion that should not be missed.

The gifted thespians and backstage crew involved in the Sliabh Luachra Drama Group will present their own unique adaptation of Tommy Marren’s It’s The Real McCoy with the curtain rising in Scartaglen Heritage Centre for the first time at 8.00pm this Friday night and further productions are scheduled for Saturday and Sunday and again on February 7, 8 and 9.

Set in rural Ireland in 1964, this is the story of two dramatic days in the life of 68-year-old Madge Millie who has lived for over four decades of her life wondering why her husband, Tom, vanished without a trace just four months after their wedding day.

The arrival in the parish of new curate, Fr McCoy, is about to throw a light on it all and, as the story unfolds, there is great wit, a very unique storyline and riveting drama.

This is the Sliabh Luachra Drama Group’s 19th production and previous smash hits have included Sive, Dancing at Luaghnasa, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, Sharon’s Grave and Translations.

This year’s eagerly-awaited production has a strong cast including Moira Hughes, Mary Fleming, Danny O’Leary Tim Dineen, John Walsh, Lorraine Salmon and Ciara Kerin.
