Brideview Drama comes to Kilworth

Palace Players, having taken a win at the Banteer Drama Festival (and the best actress award) on Friday night, chalked up five marks at the Dublin One-Act Drama Festival in Tallaght on Saturday with Tony Domaille’s ‘Life In The Cloud’, taking second place to Corofin (‘Two’ by Jim Cartwright). 

The Tallaght outing was the first of their six circuit festivals and Sean Ahern and Audrey Browne jointly received an adjudicator’s award. They travel to Kilmallock on this Friday night where they face adjudicator Pauline Byrne in a stiff competition that includes Kilmeen, Doonbeg, Brideview and Coolgreaney.

Their Banteer win mirrored that of the Ballincollig Festival a week earlier, Helen Hallissey being the judge on both of these occasions.

The group would also like to say well done to Conna who also took second place in their category with ‘Me And My Friend’ in Tallaght and to Brendan Hurleyon his adjudicator’s award.
