It’s The Real McCoy - a side splitting play set in rural Ireland in 1964 - really is a laugh a line and is set in the kitchen of Madge Molloy who has lived over 40 years of her life wondering why her husband Tom vanished within five months of their marriage. Madge has had to rear her only daughter Maura on her own and needless to say she has become bitter about men in general.
However, the arrival of a new curate to the parish - namely Fr. Michael McCoy - is about to throw light on the circumstances surrounding Tom’s mysterious disappearance and what unfolds on stage has to be seen to be believed! Madge has some serious decisions to make and she has to think on her feet!
With Ireland’s two nosiest neighbours, a gormless postman who has fallen in love with Madge’s daughter, a nervous curate, and an even more nervous husband, this play is packed with hilarious one-liners, a gripping storyline and an ending that will have audiences guessing right up to the final moments of the production as to what the final outcome will be. Will Madge Molloy have her revenge or is love about to conquer?
This is one play that will have you on the edge of your seat all night and more importantly in tears of laughter. A story like this could only happen in Ireland!
It’s The Real McCoy comes to the Mullingar Arts Centre for two nights on May 9 and 10. Tickets are € 18/16 and are available by calling (044 ) 9347777.
