HaggleRock Theatre Group set to tread the boards this June at the Droichead Arts Centre


HaggleRock Theatre Group have announced that their previous ‘sell out’ performance of ‘Only An Hour From Dublin’ in March will take to the stage again at the Droichead Arts Centre, Stockwell Street, Drogheda for three nights only on June 16th, 17th & 18th.

The cast had just about hung up their costumes when they received the call inviting them to join the line up of events in the prestigious Droichead Arts Centre.

Patricia Reynolds, Chairman of the group said: “The invitation came out of the blue when an audience member from the Drogheda area attended one of our shows and brought it to the attention of the Droichead Arts Centre.

“For anyone who missed the local performance in March, it’s a chance to come to Drogheda to see this hilarious comedy. The plot is super with lots of laughs and mystery and the audience will be treated to a fun filled evening.”

‘Only an Hour From Dublin’, penned by Grainne Jordan (originally from Ardee and now living in Dublin), is a hilarious two act comedy set during the ‘boom and bust’ era of the Celtic Tiger.  Featuring a ‘well to do’ family who live on a country estate in a fictional town only an hour from the capital, it tells the story of how the family have to lease out their stately home to increase revenue. A family of ladies from the Liberties in Dublin decide to rent the house and open a B&B but problems arise when they discover the house is haunted.

The cast includes well known names from and Ardee including;  Patricia Reynolds, Joan Wilson, Margaret Gamble, Fiona O’Murchu, John Tumilty, Brian McElroy, Frank McGrath, Suzanne Kavanagh, Tom Doonan, Eimear Boyle and Anne Donaghy.  The play is directed by Pat Cleary and produced by Brigitte Nelson.

‘Only An Hour From Dublin’ will take place over three nights at the Droichead Arts Centre on June 16th, 17th & 18th at 8 pm.
