“I’d rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.”  

Trapdoor Theatre Company are proud to present the world premiere of Simple And Familiar by Robert Doherty and Brian Coady. After the success of their sell-out short play last Christmas, Simple and Familiar return in their new, full-length adventure.
Having been friends for over thirty years, Simple and Familiar’s friendship is tested with the arrival in thier local pub of one Paddy Lucas. Add to this the new woman in town, Fanny Butler(what’s her agenda?), Tony, the barman’s worries over his daughter, Caoimhe’s imminent emigration up to Dublin. Leave simmer for two hours and voila, Comedy Soup. Drink it up! Directed by Joe Meagher and Shauna Farrell, starring a fantastic local cast of Deborah Cunningham, Fatz Dunphy, Vivienne Coughlan, Damien Walsh, Robert Doherty and Brian Coady. It’s sure to sell fast, so get your tickets early!
