Update 18th August

"The Pleasure Ground"

Friday, August the 21st and Saturday the 22nd:"The Pleasure Ground" by Jarlath Tivnan in Galway Town Hall. Boyle actor Jarlath Tivnan, fresh from his successful appearance in 'The Dead School' at Galway Arts Festival, now appears in his own play the Pleasure Ground in Galway Town Hall Theatre for two nights, Friday August the 21st and Saturday the 22nd. The play is Directed by Jarlath's cousin Maria Tivnan of Fregoli Theatre Company Galway, whose company has performed at Boyle Arts Festival a number of times.
So if you are from Boyle and in Galway reading this, as the Aldi Challenge goes, 'Tell your friends and (maybe) they'll tell their friends' and we could generate a supporting crowd, which would be nice. The story of the play centres around, 'a group of friends who've gone their separate ways who meet back at their teenage haunt, the town park and playground, known as the Pleasure Ground. The town is in limbo, the Pleasure Ground’s glory has faded, and life hasn't quite matched up to youthful expectations. Over their night together, buried secrets become unearthed, past grievances boil over, and scores are settled'.
Actors are Kate Murray, Peter Shine, Eilish McCarthy and Jarlath Tivnan.
Initial reviews say; "bog gothic… reminiscent of Patrick McCabe" : "a marriage of brutality and tenderness" Irish Theatre.
