Plays by and about the Irish

Thanks to all who came out in support to see "The Kings of the Kilburn High Road"! 


Our next production is "A Wake in the West" by Michael J Ginnelly, Directed by Tanya Wolff. 

This show will be staged at the Irish Cultural Society, February 10-18, 2017. 


The story takes place in a small town in County Mayo, in the west of Ireland in the early 1980’s. Local man Tom Healy has died and he is being waked in his house by the sea. He has left some unusual funeral instructions with the local doctor who passes the details on to the dead man’s children. His last wishes do not sit well at all with his daughter Mary and his estranged son Martin, who has just returned from  America for the funeral. Should they bury him properly in a normal grave or give in to his last request?
