Borrisoleigh Drama Group Present The House Husband

This coming weekend Borrisoleigh Drama Group Present The House Husband in the Marion Hall, Borrisoleigh on Friday 2nd,Saturday 3rd and Monday 5th May at 8.15pm. Monday night is charity night with funds being donated to two worthy charities, The Suir Haven Cancer Support Centre, Thurles and Pieta House Suicide and Self Harm Centre, Roscrea. Your support is greatly appreciated.

The House Husband by Jimmy Keary is a 3 Act Comedy. Paschal McHugh has given up his teaching job to become a House Husband, much to the disgust of his wife Geraldine, a bank official. While Paschal is busy tending to all things domestic Geraldine is busy arranging a house-warming party and is also falling for the charms of the new Assistant Bank Manager. Added to the mix is Geraldine’s snooty mother Tess, her alcohol-loving father Harry, Paschal’s domineering mother Maggie, his man-mad aunt Minnie, Paschal’s devil may care friend Richie and a couple of other characters. Throw in a baking competition, a set of false teeth, a robbery and the annual Agriculture Show and you are guaranteed plenty of laughs and a few surprises!
