Ballycumber Drama Group will be running its production of Bernard Farrell’s play ‘Canaries’ for six nights over two venues at the end of January and start of February.

It will run from Saturday, January 26th to Sunday, January 27th in Ballycumber Hall and in Tuar Ard, Moate, for four nights from Wednesday, January 30th to Saturday, February 2nd.

The final rehearsals are well underway for what is arguably Farrell’s funniest play with three couples travelling to the Canaries on a package holiday in a bid to escape their everyday surroundings.

Everyone arrives in the best of form, however things soon start to go wrong, with hilarious consequences, as the weather isn’t what was expected and the holiday makers end up having a holiday that they will never forget, but not necessarily for the right reasons.

It’s a very Irish play about a very Irish group and the audience will recognise a few characters they have come across on their own holiday experiences.
