The group taking a well earned break during rehearsals.

After months of sheer hard work and dedication, tonight (Thursday) sees the Anglesboro Drama Group open their doors for a four night run of Tom Murphy’s, ‘The Famine’.

Anxious to do something to commemorate the 1916 centenary, the group chose this powerful play, as it is their interpretation that The Famine, or Great Hunger of the 1840’s, was the catalyst that kick-started a chain of events that would lead ultimately to the Rising of 1916.
