Kilflynn Drama Group are back with the hilarious ‘the two loves of Gabriel Foley’, a play by Jimmy Keary. The play tells the story of Gabriel Foley, a middle-aged bachelor farmer, who has been unlucky in love and lives with his mother. In a last-ditch effort to find love, and show his mother that he is perfectly capable of finding a woman, he joins a ‘town’ drama group. Meanwhile his housekeeper has been in love with him for years but he is too blind to notice. Will Gabriel find love in his new drama group or see what has been in front of him all along before it is too late? You will have to wait and see! Dates: Friday 29th, Saturday 30th March, Wednesday 3rd, Friday 5th, Saturday 6th April in St Columbus Centre, Kilflynn
Doors Open 7.30 pm. Curtain 8.15 pm sharp.
