Surviving Santa Ponsa at the Town Hall Theatre
By Roisin Peddle
ENJOY A night of comedy at the Town Hall Theatre with the sequel to the smash hit play Santa Ponsa or Bust. Surviving Santa Ponsa sees the two Cork families return for more madcap adventures. Finbarr, currently on his ninth FAS scheme, is approached by a mysterious stranger, who offers Finbarr, his wife Carmel, and their friends, two weeks in the glamorous Hotel del Mar in return for delivering a sealed package to Santa Ponsa.
Like most things that sound too good to be true, it is. Finbarr and John find themselves banged up in the Ben Al Madena prison, while their wives escape to Cork with €2m in hot money.
Will the boys survive on the inside? Will their women wait for them? Will the notorious drug baron Hans von Snicht give up without a fight?
Surviving Santa Ponsa, which is the second of a trilogy which has received backing from RTE’s Dragons’ Den, runs at the Town Hall Theatre on Thursday August 30 and Friday August 31. Tickets are available from the Town Hall Theatre on 091 569777 and www.tht.ie
