On the 6th of October the Irish Government implemented level 3 restrictions across the state. Under level 3 indoor theatre-based events are not permitted. This means that we have to cancel some of the films planned for this season and that our Autumn Season will not begin until 29th of October at the earliest.
A decision on this will be taken and announced here nearer that date. In the meantime we will be contacting all those who have already bought tickets in order to arrange a refund.
The film made in the mid 70s in Conamara was first broadcast on Patrick's Night 1979 on RTÉ. As happened with Synge's, The Playboy of the Western World when first staged, some people found the film "disgraceful and disgusting" in its unromantic portrayal of Conamara in the raw.
The script was written by Colm Bairéad of Carna and the cast includes Cyril Cusack, Niall Tóibín, Dónal Mc Cann, Mick Lally, Macdara Ó Fátharta, Tom Sailí Ó Flaithearta, Mairéad Uí Chuaig and Johnny Chóil Mhaidhc.
The story hinges on the attempt by two scheming rogues to get the better of the Poteen maker. The film is being screened by Clubscannán Sailearna with the kind permission of Bob Quinn and Cinegael.
