RAHUGH Drama group present the excellent comedy Tom, Dick and Harry by Ray and Michael Cooney in Rahugh Hall on April 2, April 3, April 4, April 7, April 8, April 9 and April 10. For Bookings phone Margaret on 044 92 23522.
Due to the success of last year’s production which saw the group play to full houses for nine nights, the popular drama group decided to stage another Cooney play again this year.
The group are working hard to get the timing right in this fast moving comedy to make this year’s production as enjoyable and funny as possible.
The tremendous feeling that the cast and crew get when they pull the curtain and to have heard the audience laughing makes all the time and effort to perfect the production worthwhile. Two hours of madness and mayhem are guaranteed.
Tom, Dick and Harry is a farcical romp that will have the audience laughing right from the start. Tom and his wife Linda are anxiously awaiting a visit from the local adoption agency.If all goes well they hope to become parents shortly, they’ve read all the books, child-proofed their house and memorized the questionnaire so what could possibly go wrong?
Tom’s brother Dick, also the upstairs tenant, has just snuck through customs with 400,000 cigarettes and cases of liquor in Tom’s van. It turns out he has also unknowingly crossed the border with two illegal immigrants. Harry, Tom’s older brother, an attendant in the local hospital mogue, has arrived with a cadaver (dead body) and several bags of body parts.
In the confusion Harry misplaces the body parts, the immigrants enter the house looking for food and Mrs. Potter from the agency arrives. The local Garda stops to inquire about a missing tax disc on Tom’s car only to walk into the mayhem.
The stories and the fun escalate as Tom tries to keep his brother’s shenanigans out of sight of Linda, the agency and the Garda.
