Ballyduff Drama Group present the Irish premiere of 'A Fine Bright Day Today, by Philip Gouling next weekend.
The lights are hung, lines learned and the final touches are in place as Ballyduff Drama Group prepares to bring their 2019 Festival production of 'A fine Bright Day Today' by Philip Goulding to the Ballyduff stage.
Directed by Ger Canning, with a stellar cast of Valerie O'Leary, Richie Walsh and Gayle Jordan, this production is sure to delight and move audiences. Join us next Saturday and Sunday, February 23 and 24 for this warm, funny and moving production with a message that everyone deserves a second chance.
The play revolves around Margaret Harvey who has lived with her daughter Rebecca in a small cottage in a coastal town, since the death of her trawlerman husband 30 years ago. Rebecca is moving out to live with her boyfriend, so when she meets Milton Farnsworth, an American visiting the area to paint the landscape, she invites him to lodge with Margaret during his stay. Margaret has become increasingly set in her ways over the years, dependent on ritual and superstition, but with patience, humour, and cheap wine, Milton gradually encourages her to relinquish her hold on control. Warm, funny and moving, 'A Fine Bright Day Today' explores love, set on the edge of an English coastal area, where lives are reshaped by a chance meeting with an exotic stranger.
Booking from 2-8pm on 058-60456. Tickets will also be available nightly at the door. Performance begins at 8.15pm. See www.ballyduffdrama.com for more details of all upcoming events.
