Farcical fun in Silverbridge

May 1, 2017

Laughter and hilarity will be the order of the day when the Lake End Players, Glassdrummond return from a 30 year break to perform the hilarious Fred Duprez comedy ‘My Wife’s Family’ on Sunday 7th May at 7.30pm in Silverbridge Resource Centre.
The play, set in the 1940’s, revolves around mayhem following the arrival of Jack Gay’s mother-in-law and her family to his new home. Chaos and confusion prevail when the mother in law is mistaken for a piano, the piano is mistaken for a baby,  a love struck actress arrives and the maid reveals she has a secret husband.
The Lake End Players were formed in 1977 by Tony Kieran and the late Peadar McBride who presented plays annually over a 10 year period in Glassdrummond Hall. They also participated in the Lislea Drama Festival in its early years, winning a number of awards including ‘Best Supporting Actress’ for the late Gertie Carragher and Mary McSorley & ‘Best Moment of Theatre’ for the late Peadar McBride. Other awards included ‘Best Set’ and the audience award for ‘Most Entertaining Play’. The current cast comprises John and Kieran Murphy, Jerome Burns and Mary McSorley, who were part of the original Lake End Players, together with panto stalwarts Sandra Hearty, Sarah Reel and Peter Reel. Newcomers Bronwyn Traynor, Orla Reel, Niall McArdle and Pat and Micheal Casey complete the line up. The play is being produced by Teresa McBride, daughter of Peadar, assisted by Mary McCann. Absolutely a night not to be missed! Tickets available from cast members £7/€10 or pay at the door.
