Following a sell out performance last year in Westport Town Hall with The Matchmaker, John Kenny and Mary McEvoy will make a return visit to Westport on Friday, June 9, with their latest production The Successful TD by John B Keane. This production is making waves on the national theatre circuit playing to packed houses around the country to rave reviews.
The Successful TD follows the trials, tribulations, misadventures and hilarious antics of Tull McAdoo as he seeks re-election to the Dail. Written by John B Keane in 1967, this play displays his edge for humour and satire that are uncomfortably close to the politics of today. Peppered with Keane's gallery of madcap characters this show will have you laughing at politics (in a good way ) from start to finish.
Tull has roped in the help of his faithful daughter Kate, while his wife nurses her various ailments in bed or Lisdoonvarna, but his arch enemy Flannery, the local schoolteacher, plans to scupper the election for Tull. The curtain goes up on Friday, June 9, at 8pm in Westport Town Hall. Tickets are €22 available from the box office by calling (098 ) 28459 or online at www.westporttheatre.com
