Borrisoleigh Drama Group Perform Leaving Cert Play ‘The Trial’

Leaving Cert play ‘The Trial’  takes to the stage in Borrisoleigh Hall.

This coming Bank Holiday Weekend (April 28th, 29th & May 1st 2017) will see Borrisoleigh Drama Group present their latest stage production, ‘The Trial’.

Cast of ‘The Trial’  to be staged in Borrisoleigh Community Hall on April 28th, 29th & May 1st, 2017.

The play was originally written in Irish as ‘An Triail’, by the Irish playwright Máiréad Ní Ghráda and is part of the Irish language curriculum for the Leaving certificate.

The play is set in Ireland during the 1960’s and deals with the pregnancy, and subsequent single motherhood of a young woman, (played by Antoinette McMahon) latter who is shunned by her family, spends time in a mother and baby home and in some rather unsavoury accommodation in Dublin city.

The play travels back and forth between “flashbacks” and the trial itself and contains adult themes, perhaps suitable for more mature audiences.

People are advised to book their seats early, as last year’s very successful run of ‘The Chastitute’, by John B. Keane, which was also performed by Borrisoleigh Drama Group; same was completely sold out over the 3 night period, hence much disappointment.
