Connect Force

Given the amount of artistic talent in this town, it’s hardly surprising that the founder of the town’s new drama group The Greystones Players has been spoilt for choice when it comes to hitting the stage.

For Aideen Walton, such an abundance of talent has meant making the leap from May’s sell-out adaptation of Brian Friel’s Dancing At Lughnasa to this month’s ambitious offering of four one-act plays boasting 18 actors.

Hey, when you’ve got so many enthusiastic and dedicated thespians to choose from, it makes sense to give as many of them as you can roles to play.

Under the umbrella title of Connections, the 18 actors will tackle O. Henry’s While The Auto Waits, David Ives’ Sure Thing, Paul Dooley and Winnie Holzman’s Post-Its and Michael Frayn’s Audience.

It’s going to be another magical three nights for The Whale’s resident drama group – and, unsurprisingly, this Greystones Players outing has proven to be another sell-out run.
