KILFLYNN DRAMA GROUP
Its been many long years ago since there was A Play or Variety Show in Kilflynn village and you would have to go back to the 1950 and 1960s to find a time when there was at least one show a year. With the start of a Drama Society this year it is the hope of everyone that we will have an annual Play for many years to come. Of course back in those days the Church didn't allow dances during Lent and so the community turned to the stage as a form of entertainment. We've heard many a great story from back in those Days about wonderful actors the likes of Tom Joe O'Sullivan, Patrick Mahony, Maureen Hickey, Denis Condon, Paud White, Nora Neenan, Michael Parker, The Cahills to name put a few, many of whom have Passes on now to a new stage. (R.I.P).
So it is fantastic to renew such a tradition this year and although the days are long gone where dancing was banned. the face that the first play by Kilflynn Drama Society science that time is on during Lent is without doubt a nod to the great men and women of yester year.
With the passage of time of course and a new beginning, all the cast of this years play are new comers to the stage, but with names such as Lynch, Brennan, Neenan, McElligott, Parker and O'Brien , joined by some of our newer residents to the village like Guiheen, Mulligan and Harris , co-produced by Tim O’Halloran and Clive Putman feels there got a "Dream Team".


The Play itself "A Widows Paradise" is a piece of comedy genius By Sam Cree and although set back in the 1960's has a modern feel to it, with some wonderful turns of phrase and a pace that will have the audience on the edge of there seats and tears of laughter in there eyes. Ruby (Marian Lynch) is a strong forceful woman who has made a decision that "Never Again" is the way forward and is fervently supported by Vanessa (Brenda Muligan) and Rachel(Geraldine Parker), however Her friend Lucy (Kathleen McElligott) has a different point of view, while her daughter Sylvia (Helena Brennan) is an independent young woman with a mind of her own.
The cast and crew have been enjoying the busy rehearsals for what promises to be a cracker of a play, organised by O'Neill's Crotta Hurling Club takes place in St. Columbus Centre Hall in Kilflynn on Friday March 2nd, Saturday March 3rd and Sunday March 4th with doors open at 7.30 p.m. and curtain at 8.15 sharp.
