In other news, Brideview have just began rehearsing for their autumn comedy production “The Shaughraun” by Dion Boucicault. This melodrama is set in the county Sligo and it tells the tale of Robert Ffolliot, the fenian hero, who has returned to Ireland having escaped from prison in Australia. The British forces in Ireland are fast on his heels and we follow his journey in this action packed drama which is full of humour and over the top characters. Watch this space for more information over the coming weeks.
