Three courses of drama at the ready….. 

Ennis Players’ Annual Supper Theatre is back with three offerings to whet your theatrical appetite this November.

Elysium Nevada by Barry McKinley – In a retirement village in the sweltering Nevada desert, two residents reflect on life, youth and how they got there. They are joined by a mysteriously silent woman whose presence adds an entirely new dimensions to the discussion. Directed by Saoirse Byrne, and features Hugh Gallagher as Bob, Conor Lynch as Mike and Amy McEnnis as Constance. 

Trapped, by Barry Woods – When Faye responds to a distressed phonecall from her best friend, they discover information that is both profound and life changing. A ten minute play about the unexpected parts that people play in life.  Directed by Joe Moran and features Nerys Garfield, Conor Clohessy and Mike Higgins. 

Where there’s a will, Tony Layton – The Makepeace family have seen better days, and are pleased to hear of the death of wealthy Aunt Agatha. While, this could mean a change in their fortunes, Agatha had stipulated that her money would only go to her brother, Howard, if he had a wife. A plan is hatched… Directed by Paul Corey and features Olivia Loughnane, Mick Loughnane, Teri Brandon, Donncha McCarthy, Gillian Dunphy, Noreen O’Loughlin and Richard Donnellan.
