Welcome

Gorey Little Theatre Group has been running strong since the 1950′s. During our time we have put on countless performances. We host the annual South Leinster Drama Festival in which amateur drama groups from all over the country come to perform. From our humble beginnings we have undergone many changes in our venue, from our first home in Courtown Harbour to the fine modern 300+ seater auditorium today. We are always looking for new members to join the group and help out, whether it’s acting or backstage that you’re into, we’d love to hear from you.

Thanks

Mrs. Nancy Byrne

- President

We will be holding auditions for our Summer Plays 

Tuesday 3rd and Wednesday 4th of May

The Summer Plays have been chosen as the following:

 July

 ‘The Family Plot’

by  Daragh Carville 

Directed by Michael Dunbar

Synopsis

Inside their family grave, three generations of Kerrs are dead and buried, but condemned not to rest.

They didn’t get on in life and they certainly don’t get on in death. They continue to battle out the arguments of their lifetimes,

until the youngest member of the family arrives in the grave, a fourth generation and the last of the line.

It is only with Emer’s arrival that the family begin to realise that they must accept the cost and consequences of how they lived before

their story of forgotten love and shocking betrayal can finally be resolved and they can find some kind of peace.

 

This play casts 4 females and 2 males

 

 

August

‘Sharons Grave’

by John B. Keane

Directed by Paul Walsh

Synopsis

The action takes place in a small farmhouse on an isolated headland on the south-western seaboard of Ireland, about twenty years ago(1960)

Keane’s play about the struggle between the forces of good and evil and the mythical beliefs of 1930’s rural Ireland deals with a man’s ruthless

lust for land, which overrides all family loyalties, and can ultimately lead to tragedy.

This play casts 8 males and 4 females
