‘Our Town’ Opening Tonight, Tuesday Oct. 11th!

Ballyshannon Drama Society presents ‘Our Town’ by Thornton Wilder, directed by Anne Mc Hugh & Geraldine Diver. It tells the story of the fictional American small town of Grover’s Corners between 1901 and 1913 through the everyday lives of its citizens. The show will run in the Abbey Arts Centre for four nights: Tuesday 11th October, Wednesday 12th, Thursday 13th and Sunday 16th, at 8pm each night. 

While there is no traditional set in Wilder’s play, there is an abundance of characters, as there is in any small town. Over twenty actors will take to the stage tonight, some familiar to the Abbey audience, but many new and full of talent. Our journey through ‘Our Town’ is guided by the Stage Manager, played by Michael Mc Mullin. He introduces us to the town and all its characters.

This is a wonderful play which breaks away from traditional theatre to tell a well-known story which is still relevant today, even though the play was first produced in 1938. Contact the Abbey Arts Centre box office to book your ticket: 0719851375. Tickets will also be available at the door.
