The Pull, the popular comedy show by Liam Horan and John Corless of Half Solid Productions, will be performed at Ballina Arts Centre tonight (Friday ) at 8 pm.
The Pull was written by Mayo writers and actors Horan and Corless, and has recently enjoyed a successful 30-night run all over Ireland. Liam is a former Gaelic games correspondent of the Irish Independent, and creator of the popular Championship Man series on RTÉ Radio One.
John is a well-known poet and playwright who has performed his work in Ireland, the UK, the USA and Australia.
The Pull is a lively comedy based on an “unreal real event that may or not have taken place in rural Ireland,” according to Liam.
Fictional GAA club Ballybore, supposedly founded some 130 years before the foundation of the GAA, finds itself in some financial trouble. But it’s not nearly as big as they think.
In fact, they are only €1,000 in debt, but it feels like €1 million to the main people involved in the club. They set about trying to solve the problem and decide to pull a dump truck around their home town to raise money and get themselves in the Guinness Book of Records. Chaos ensues and they end up getting in way over their heads. The Pull is a lively comedy, suitable for all ages.
It is set in the fictional town of Ballybore, where, bizarrely, the local GAA club claim to pre-date the foundation of the GAA by some 130 years.
The Pull is suitable for all ages. Liam and John are looking forward to bringing the play to Ballina on Friday, March 21. The show starts at 8 pm and admission is €12/€10.
