Friday November 18 

Arsenic and Old Lace at the Source Thurles

Thurles Drama Group is delighted to present this hilarious comedy written by Joseph Kesselring and directed by Pat Loughnane. Hero, Mortimer Brewster, is a drama critic who must deal with his crazy, homicidal family and local police, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the woman he loves. With a cast comprising of some very familiar faces along with a few newcomers to the group and a fabulous script, this is a play not to be missed! Tickets €15/ €10. Show at 8pm.

Cashel Choral & Dramatic Society present Ladies in Retirement

This highly entertaining thriller will chill and excite audiences! It was first performed in the Richmond Theatre, London in 1939. The play was an enormous hit and transferred to the St James’s Theatre where it ran for 311 performances to full houses. It subsequently became a big hit on Broadway. It was also made into a film in 1941 by Columbia Pictures and received two Oscar nominations. The year is 1885. In a remote, lonely house on the marshes of the Thames estuary Leonora Fiske, a retired actress, lives with her companion, Ellen Creed. At first, a visit from Ellen's two sisters does little to suggest what lies ahead, but when the eccentric guests make themselves at home, Leonora's patience wears thin. She requests that Ellen's guests leave, leading to a bitter row and a suspicious disappearance. The arrival of the Creed sisters' nephew Albert only adds to the mystery and suspense, as his own shadowy past complicates the recent occurrences. Has he stumbled upon madness or murder? A masterpiece of suspense with beautiful comedy moments, this play cannot be missed!
Tickets are €15. Concession tickets for students and senior citizens Thursday and Friday night €10. Brú Boru, Cashel 17th – 20th November 2016, 8pm sharp. Phone our box office in Brú Ború on 062 61122

Dyad Productions present Christmas Gothic theatre at the Source

From the creators of’ The Unremarkable Death of Marilyn Monroe’, ‘Austen’s Women’ and ‘I, Elizabeth’
Christmas: a time to remember the past, celebrate the present, and look to the future; a time of feasts and festivities; of holly and mistletoe; a time of visits and visitations. A time of ghosts. Come in from the cold and enter into the Christmas spirit as a dark and spectral woman tells haunting tales of the festive season, lighting a candle to the frailties of human nature and illuminating the cold and chilling depths of the bleak, wintry dark. Tickets cost €15 and show begins at 8pm.
