THREE short plays penned and produced by three well-known Killarney men were greeted with great enthusiasm and a hugely positive reaction when they were staged for the first time this week.
Brian Bowler, Dennis Earlie and Paddy Osborne – who all have links with Killarney Legion GAA Club – rolled out their work to appreciative audiences in the upstairs venue of Courtney’s Bar on Plunkett Street on Monday and Tuesday night and the final presentation of the three-night production will be on this Wednesday.
The engaging three 10-15 minute plays are linked through narration from Reidin O’Connor, who plays the role of bartender, and the reaction has been incredible with a prolonged standing ovation last night alone.
Dennis Earlie’s work is a fast-moving comedy called Rent-o-Killers and Paddy Osborne’s play, Barflies, is also very light-hearted with some great one-liners.
Brian Bowler’s more serious drama, titled Every Picture Tells a Story, was inspired by a painting by the late great Ted Jones, the brilliant artist who lived in Killarney for several years.
Tonight’s drama feast will commence at 8.00pm, doors open at 7.30pm and the entertainment will conclude, most likely with another standing ovation at 9.00pm.
