Gooseberry Rules

Massive congratulations to the director Nikhil Dubey and cast of ‘Gooseberry’ – Dan McCormack, Declan Ryan and Paul McGrath – who placed first in the Ballina One Act Drama Festival. Special thanks to techie Keith Cooper & writer Hugh Cardiff!

Say what?

Directed by the lovely Nikhil Dubey, ‘Gooseberry’ after it’s storming performance at this year’s summer Shindig is being taken to stages around Ireland as part of the the One Act Circuit.

What’s the craic with it?

Three farmers in a small town, Ireland, are life-long mates and go to Bernie’s pub every Friday. But when two of them fall for each other, the third has to come to terms with what his future holds.

Deadly buzz! Where and when can I see it?

  • Ballina: Ballina Arts Centre on 7th November
  • Letterkenny: An Grianán Theatre on 13th November
  • Ballymahon: Bog Lane Theatre on 14th November
  • Goresbridge: Ionad Dara Theatre on 19th November
  • Table Quiz for Harvey – Wed 11th November, Grand social

    Are you the music type or the movies type? Are sports or video games your bag? Everybody’s got their favourite, and this time around the No Drama Table Quiz aims to tickle your fancy and make you think “Argh! I know that one”!

    But…if you know the answer to such questions as “Who said ‘I am the one who knocks'” or “When did Ireland win the Grand Slam in rugby?”…frankly, it’s useless information and it won’t help you in this quiz. A multimedia feast, all questions will be tantalisingly fun, but a touch different from your typical table quiz.

    “What’s this for?” I hear you ask. To which I may sarcastically reply “Read the heading”. Or, if you’ve caught me in a good humour, I’ll explain that it’s for No Drama’s Winter Production, ‘Harvey’! A comedy written by Mary Chase with our maestro Declan Ryan directing a wonderful cast from December 1st to December 5th in Smock Alley. This table quiz will allow that to happen and will of course, whet your appetite in coming along to see it!

    Tenner in, raffle tickets to be bought at half time, awesome prizes to be won. For an example, a copy of Destiny on PS4!!

    So come on down to the Grand Social this Wednesday 11th of November at 7.30pm. It’s €10 euro per person and you can either get yourself a team together (4 or 5 max please) or come along yourself and we’ll put you with a team.

    And here is the facebook link so you can show off to all your facebook friends:

    N.B. We’re starting at 7pm sharp tomorrow (Tues 20th Oct) at CBS Synge Street.
