Boden play to entertain with a Keane Edge

JOHN B Keane will be looking down on Páirc Uí Mhurchú tomorrow night.

The Boden Theatre group are staging his play, 'Many Young Men of Twenty'.

"It has been no mean feat to get this play ready for opening night," reveals Carol Fitzmaurice.

"We performed another John B play, 'Big Maggie', and both plays share similarities where serious themes are interspersed with comedy, fun and laughter.

"Many Young Men of Twenty was first staged in 1961 and people can relate to going away in Ireland. But we like to bring out the fun elements of the story, so there will be singing, dancing, live music and laughter galore."

Director, John Joe O'Sullivan, has a talented crew. Performing big roles for the first time will be Eoin O'Flaherty, Patrick Lyons, Cillein McEvoy and Niamh Hogan.

The show will have a four-night run - tomorrow, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Curtain up at 8.pm. Tickets, €12 (concessions €8, from Ballyboden St Enda's or Ger (086-8516387) and Carol (086-4070015).

Hurling Summit

THERE will be a crucial Dublin hurling meeting next Tuesday, November 18, in Parnell Park (8pm).

And Dublin hurling committee chief, Eamonn Potts, says it's vital that all delegates attend.

"We have some crucial business to discuss as we gear up for 2015, so it's critical that we have a full attendance," insists Eamonn. "There are some very important issues to be sorted, and we need the full co-operation of the Dublin club hurling fraternity."
