Templemore Theatre Group will take to the boards once again this year, with their production of “All Souls’ Night” by Joseph Tomelty.
A 3 Act play, where the title reflects on the time when the dead traditionally return to their home hearths, its heightened language and images drawn from things familiar to everyone, All Souls Night contains some of the author’s finest writing.
Set on the shores of Strangford Lough, the play deals with the tragic events in the home of John Quinn, an illiterate fisherman, his ambitious son Michael and his miserly wife Kathrine, whose greed caused the death of their youngest son. Poverty and superstition dominate this isolated fishing community but it is Kathrine’s greed that will - ’get the upper hand’. The play has been staged and broadcast across the world and is broadly accepted as the work that inspired J.B.Keane (Sive, The Field etc) to take up his pen.
Rehearsals have been ongoing for some time under producer Sean Ryan, and the Templemore Arms Hotel will host the production over three nights 29th 30th and 31st March 2012 at 8.30pm (sharp).
