The Kilfenora Dramatic Society staged Mayo playwright Michael J Ginnelly’s black comedy “A Wake in the West” from 15-17 November 2019 in Kilfenora Hall.
The production was a stunning success. Every night the hall was full over half an hour before curtain up – attendees arriving the customary few minutes before the start time were sadly disappointed! However, given that the production was so popular, the cast agreed to a fourth night’s show on the following Tuesday.
The actors – all drawn from Kilfenora or nearby – were Adrian O’Gorman, Lisa Connole, Eileen Hegarty, John Howard, Lisa Carkill, Mary Buckley, Lisa Carkill, Mickie McCormack, Willie Cahir and Paul Bowen.
Father Ned Crosby was the producer, as in recent years, ably assisted by a number of local volunteers covering staging, make-up, front-of-house etc.. A short interview with the playwright can be viewed here.
