Charlie Smyth and the Newry Panto Players to create mayhem in Lislea!

September 15, 2014

“Cupid Wore Skirts” by Sam Cree, The Old School House Theatre, Lislea

Lislea warmly welcomes the return of Charlie Smyth and the Newry Panto Players with the hilarious three act comedy penned by the famed Lisburn playwright on Saturday 20th September at 8pm.

This popular show has audiences rolling in the aisles with laughter and Charlie Smyth’s production will not disappoint.  The play is set in the home of antique dealer Andrew Coulter, a widower who lives with his elderly father and teenage son, Brian. His married daughter, Daphne, comes in each day to take care of the men and ensure they are coping. When Daphne becomes pregnant she fears for her male relatives’ ability to cope.

Andrew’s sister in law is convinced they will not be able to manage and makes a wager that he couldn’t get a new wife within a fortnight. Andrew advertises for a wife in the forlorn hope that he will win the bet and obtain a solution to his problems.

Blending the customary potpourri of Cree characters the play races along to the inevitable conclusion but not before audiences are treated to a hilarious evening of comedy and mayhem that are the hallmarks of Sam Cree’s writing.

As this is a very popular show, patrons are advised to come early to avoid disappointment! Tickets are priced at £6 and are available at the door. Curtain up at 8pm sharp.
