Opening Night of 63rd Drama Festival

The 63rd Ballyshannon Drama Festival opens tonight with ‘Same Old Moon’ by Gerakdine Aron, presented by St. Dympna’s, Dromore, in the Confined section. This very funny and moving play follows the life of aspiring writer Brenda Barnes, from childhood to her early forties. Through her eyes, we see her eccentric and fiery Irish family – her wilful and self-destructive Dad, her put-upon and sometimes hot-tempered Mum, and many other characters that have influenced her life. It is a charming, but not uncritical, look at family – a play littered with comedy and poignancy throughout, and promises to entertain. Some tickets are still available on the door. Curtain at 8.15pm.
