It takes to the stage in Ballycumber Community Centre on Saturday and Sunday, February 1 and 2 at 8pm and in Tuar Ard, Moate from Wednesday, February 5 to Saturday, February 8 at the later time of 8.30pm.

First produced in February 1965, this play tells the story of widower Andrew Coulter, whose sister-in-law goads him into a wager that he cannot find a wife within one week. An advertisement is promptly placed in the local newspaper and hilarity ensues as we meet an array of very different suitors ranging from a pop wannabe through to a demure home-made wine connoisseur and a career husband hunter with a family in tow.

Directed by Chris Murphy, who also directed Ballycumber Drama Groups sell-out production of Bernard Farrells ‘Canaries’ in 2013, ‘Cupid wore Skirts’ stars Derek Claffey, Aidan Dunne, Martina Fanning, Clare Flattery, Michael Hiney, Charlotte Molloy, Carol Robbins and Padraic Seery.  Newcomer Siobhán O’Brien is also taking to the stage this year.

Tickets will be available at the door and are priced €10 per person or €8 concession. Bookings can be made for Tuar Ard by contacting 09064 82042.
