Torch’s Moonshine returns to Belltable

Moonshine, the well-received show by local drama group Torch Players, returns by popular demand to the Belltable this week.

Moonshine, the well-received show by local drama group Torch Players, returns by popular demand to the Belltable this week.

The show previously played to delighted audiences for four nights in early March and returns next week for one night only.

A haunting and hilarious play written by Jim Nolan, Moonshine is set in a seaside village where the local undertaker, McKeever and Church of Ireland Rector, Rev Langton are both struggling with professional and personal crises.

In order to instill some ‘moonshine’ into the lives of locals, McKeever attempts to get them involved in a production of A Midsummer’s Night Dream.

“Both the real and imaginary worlds of the undertaker/drama producer collide and Nolan builds a moving and hilarious play in which his characters search for their private resurrections,” explained director and Torch founder Maurice O’Sullivan, who has assembled a cracking cast for the production, including Micheal O’Dubhghaill in the lead role.
