The Constant Wife Comes To The Source Theatre

The ever popular Thurles Amateur Drama Club take to the stage of The Source Theatre, Cathedral Street, Thurles, on Monday night next.  Directed by Liam Ryan, the club bring to the stage their very own production of the hilarious period comedy “The Constant Wife,” written by the English playwright, novelist, MI6 spy, short story & Hollywood script writer William Somerset Maugham.

The production runs from Monday 5thSaturday 10th of  Nov 2012′

This period comedy’s leading character is Constance Middleton, the calm, intelligent and self-possessed wife of a successful London doctor. Aware of her husband’s infidelity with her best friend Marie-Louise, Constance deliberately maintains the fiction held by her other friends, mother and sister, that she has no idea of the affair. Confronted now by Marie-Louise’s jealous husband, Constance reacts in a way that is not expected by her own husband, friends & same family members. Instead she shocks them by demonstrating a total lack of sentiment on the subject of matrimony. She explains that the modern wife is nothing but a parasite, “a prostitute who doesn’t deliver the goods.”

As is usual for Thurles Drama Club, with most of their very fine productions, Monday’s opening night is also a ‘Benefit Night,’ in aid of the Two-Mile- Borris Community and Development Group & tickets will cost €20.

This period comedy, which begins sharp at 8.00pm each night, is wonderfully directed by Liam Ryan & is a must for lovers of acting theatre.

Ticket: Except for the aforementioned Benefit Night, tickets cost €15 (€10 concession)
