An Evening of Belly Aches and Politics

Clondalkin Drama Group

Clondalkin Drama Group’s newest production; a night of 2 plays that we have called An Evening of Belly Aches and Politics! We are delighted to perform 2 short plays this September to give you a night full of laughter! The Fat Lady Sings in Little Grimley is a one act comedy written by David Tristram to continue his Little Grimley saga and will be directed by Sinéad Breen. This play is set around the same Little Grimley Amateur Dramatic Society facing yet another threat to their survival. The four must pull together to devise an ingenious military-style plan that doesn’t, well, go quite to plan. Could this finally be the end of their society? Don’t be so sure. It’s never over … until the fat lady sings. Going Green is a tragic comedy also written by David Tristram, directed by Alan McNally. This play focuses on John Brown, future leader of the Green Party – A man with vision. A man with charisma. But a man with a problem. Forced by a mystery illness to quit his beloved politics, John decides to give one, last blistering farewell speech at the annual conference. The party faithful rise as one to greet their hero. The press cameras crackle and flash. And John stands to deliver his final, stark message to the waiting world. “Go green…or die.” Little could he know just how profound those words would be.

It runs from 24th – 28th September at 7.30pm in Quinlan’s Black Lion, Clondalkin. Tickets are on sale in Clondalkin Village Hardware. €5 on opening night, €10 every other night. For more information, visit Clondalkin Drama Group on facebook or email
