It’s all guns blazing in Tallow this week as Brideview Drama put the finishing touches to their action-packed, fun-filled comedy ‘Pretend Sick’ which opens on Friday, Nov 2nd.
Theresa Costigan is making her acting debut as the conniving ould granny, Katie Logan, who is always putting her nose in everyone else’s business, interfering in her daughter’s love life and her son’s finances.
Despite her walking stick, her bad back and her moaning and groaning, as soon as she’s home alone she’s up doing aerobics and leaping around, opening cupboards, looking for a bite to eat.
All the while, Jack (John Cullinane) is being chased around the kitchen by his newly wedded wife Tracey (Veronica Henley).
Martin Puddler (John Roche) is making ridiculous facial expressions and ridiculous decisions in his white runners, suit pants and sleeveless jumper – someone call the fashion police!
Will Sean (James Clancy) stand up to his sister’s handsome new fella (William Curley) and will Mary (Michelle O’Keeffe) stay or will she go?
There’s a surprise in store for audiences too as Jack Aherne and Jim Hyde create some ructions on set after they stumble home from the pub with Liam Roche and Ted O’Brien.
All will be revealed on the night!
The show will take place in Tallow Community Centre on Friday, Nov 2nd, Saturday 3rd, Wednesday 7th and Saturday 10th.
Tickets €10. Curtain 8.15pm.
