WHEN PIC Players Clara continue their staging of Joseph O’ Connors drama Red Roses and Petrol on Friday and Saturday 26th and 27th of April, the origin of the play’s unusual title will be clearly revealed.
Under the direction of Aidan Digan assisted by Claire Flattery,
PIC players take their audience on an emotional and comical journey into the past of the Doyle family as they convene for the funeral of their father Enda Doyle. Played posthumously on video by Vinnie Flanagan.
Enda Doyle’s family have been left with quite a lot of familial controversy to chew over when family skeletons start to appear in spite of the valiant efforts of Moya Doyle, his widow played by Nora Kavanagh to cover up the past.
Described by those who attended the performances last weekend as a “very enjoyable nights entertainment with a stellar cast under brilliant direction” Red Roses and Petrol” is one not to be missed.
The play will be performed in the assembly hall of Scoil Bhríde Clara and tickets can an be booked by contacting 087 2108227.
The cast includes Hollie Cornally, Hazel Weir Cullen and Daniel Murray as the Doyle family. Paddy Broder as Tom and Jenny Gavin and Peter Mongan and young Moya and Enda Doyle.
Bookings are brisk for the final 2 performances so it is advised to confirm your seats by booking in advance.
Last Good Friday members of PIC players performed a moving portrayal of the Way of the Cross outdoors in Clara.
The event drew a large crowd
and people were extremely impressed at the high quality of the acting in what was a hugely challenging event.
