TWO OF Ireland's best loved actors, Mary McEvoy and comedian Jon Kenny, are coming to the Town Hall Theatre to star in John B Keane's much loved comedy, The Matchmaker.

The Matchmaker follows the efforts of Dicky Mick Dicky O’Connor to make matches for the lonely and lovelorn from all parts of the country. Yet underneath Keane’s trademark mischievous wit coupled with his unparalleled way with words, is an exploration of rural isolation and loneliness. McEvoy and Kenny play myriad characters in The Matchmaker, and previous productions starring the duo, have earned critical acclaim. As The New York Times said: "Keane uses the lyrical, colorful language of his part of the world the way a painter uses the palette."

The Matchmaker is at the Town Hall Theatre on Wednesday March 16 and Thursday 17 at 8pm. Tickets are available from the Town Hall on 091 - 569777 or www.tht.ie
