Coming Drama Seasons …

Every year we attempt to enlighten our readers on the programmes for the forthcoming Drama Festivals season. Lislea is first …

… running from next Saturday week, 27th February until Sat 13th March. Then just one week later is the Newry Drama Festival of nine nights, starting 19th March. So we begin now with some notes on the individual shows.


Thy Will Be Done by Michael Carey opens the 29th Lislea Drama Festival at 8.00 pm on Saturday 27th February 2010.


This is a contemporary play set in the West of Ireland.

It is the story of two brothers who haven’t spoken to each other for more than 40 years – the story of a failed marriage for one and of his wife who left for the U.S.A. and gave birth to her son in New York and never as long as she lived returned to Ireland but her son did and lived and worked there on the farm for 10 years.


The other brother likes to spend his days fishing and is cared for by a local woman who is a busybody but has his best interests at heart and does the housekeeping for him.

Thy Will Be Done is billed as a drama but is actually a comedy with many funny
situations and Carey has given it many witty lines.


You will relate to this play and you’ll certainly recall some characters just like the ones in the play and leave the theatre remembering the Ireland you once knew.
