Tallow Community Centre, November Friday 2nd to Saturday 7th at 8:15pm
Our fun-filled autumn comedy to beat the winter blues.
It’s comedy time in Tallow as Brideview Drama stage a hilarious comedy entitled ‘Pretend Sick’.
Taking the cast of eleven under her wing, Emily Aherne is making her directing debut putting this madcap, hilarious show on the stage at Tallow Community Centre for a four night run this November. Katie Logan played by Theresa Costigan spends her days pretending to be a crippled and decrepit old lady so that her daughter (Michelle O’Keeffe) won’t leave her living alone. But, as soon Mary’s back in turned, Katie is running around the house like a spring chicken, plotting and scheming to make Mary’s life a misery.
All the while her son Sean, played by James Clancy, squanders the family farm, spending every penny on the demon drink with his giddy pub buddies Liam Roche, Ted O’Brien, Jim Hyde and Jack Aherne. The loved-up next door neighbours – Tracey (Veronica Henley) and Jack (John Cullinane) are full of the joys of newly married life which makes Mary realise that it’s time for her to wave goodbye to her stick-in-the-mud gom of a boyfriend Martin Puddler, (played by John Roche).
A night of laugh-out loud chaotic comedy is promised and there will be plenty groovy tunes from the ’70s and ’80s to keep your toes tapping.
Performance dates : November Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd, Wednesday 7th and Saturday 10th.
