Curtain Up

by Peter Quilter

Well worth seeing - you can be assured of great entertainment"

30th September - 7th October 2023, 7.30pm
A fast-paced and very funny comedy.

Curtain Up! is the hilarious story of five women who inherit equal shares in a dilapidated theatre and plan to bring it back to life again. They try various schemes but their most ambitious is to hold a concert featuring local talent and a world-famous star who agrees to appear for no fee! However, their plans go awry and it’s a race to keep their audience from guessing the truth of the matter. 

Directed by Mike Lawlor

"A mad play, full of dynamism, momentum, funny dialogue and great surprises...
