Castleblaney Players (Open)


“The Salvage Shop”

by Jim Nolan


The grace notes are silent at Garristown Brass Band but alcoholic bandmaster and opera buff, Sylvester Tansey is haunted by personal betrayal and the memory of a glorious past and won’t let go of the baton. As the band moves to replace him, Sylvie clings to the lifeline of the Annual Regatta. Meanwhile his son Eddie, euphonium player in exile, invokes the intervention of the great Luciano Pavarotti as he struggles to forge a reconciliation with his father.
