The Diamond Jubilee Newry Drama Festival kicks off tonight at 8 pm in Newry Town Hall with a witty farce, Stella by Starlight, performed by Bart Players from Belfast.  Bart are perennial favourites in Newry.

All the action takes place in a single night in the home of contemporary Irish couple, Dermot, a down-sized corporation employee and his wife Stella, a former bank teller.  They have a teenage daughter Tara.  They have recently left the big city for a new life in the remote countryside.

There is some light entertainment afterwards in the Arts Centre – which we must miss, as our presence is required at the birthday party of a recent contributer, Peter McGrath Jnr.

What it’s like to be in demand!

Go.  Enjoy.  It should be a good night!
