NEWTOWNCASHEL DRAMA GROUP
Newtown Cashel Drama Group are delighted to announce that this seasons play is John McDwyer’s, "Callaghan’s Place", a touching, shocking and comical play centred around a community near Carrick on Shannon. An observation of the lifestyle in a rural community, the issues facing a family trying to make a decent living, and the pressure of urbanisation. The mood is lightened with a generous helping of outrageous humour as the characters reflect on life, love and the rest of the world.
