Nenagh Players return with Tom Kempinski's 'Duet for One'

After being cancelled due to the severe weather last month, the Nenagh Players are returning to the Nenagh Arts Centre on 13 and 14 April at 8pm each night to perform their festival play Tom Kempinski's  'Duet for One' following their tour of the Drama Festival Circuit.

In this powerful and moving play Stephanie Abrahams (Ciara O'Sullivan), a brilliant concert violinist who has it all, is forced to re-evaluate her life when struck down by an unforeseen tragedy.

Faced with a truth too difficult to comprehend she consults psychiatrist Dr Feldmann (Kevin Walshe) and through a series of highly charged encounters is led to examine her deepest emotions and finally to consider a future without music.

Through the course of their encounters in his consulting room, Dr Feldmann delicately probes away at Stephanie's brittle coating of resilience, to expose the truth about her background, her marriage and her self-esteem.

The play is blessed with wit, insight and a refusal to wallow in misfortune. This is a beautiful piece of drama, directed by Donal Bray.
