Kerry Drama Festival is back! It’s great to see the resumption of drama at The Ivy Leaf Theatre.
The 2020 Drama Festival was cut short and the 2021 Festival was cancelled because of Covid-19 so all credit is due to the Amateur Drama Council of Ireland and the Ivy leaf management for working hard to get Kerry Drama Festival 2022 on the road.
The programme is much shorter than usual (4 nights instead of the usual 8) but it’s a great start and all the drama-starved enthusiasts are looking forward to it immensely.
The 2022 Festival features some of the best Amateur Drama Societies in Ireland who will be recognized by theatre goers as they have all performed at The Ivy Leaf Theatre in Castleisland, in previous years.
This is the programme for Kerry Drama Festival 2022:
|Fri 4th Mar, 2022||The Beauty Queen of Leenane|
by Martin McDonagh
|Brideview Drama Group|
|Sat 5th Mar, 2022||Conversations on a Homecoming|
by Tom Murphy
|Kilmeen Drama Group|
|Sun 6th Mar, 2020||Betrayal|
by Harold Pinter
|Corofin Dramatic Society|
|Fri 11th Mar, 2020||Chapati|
by Christian O'Reilly
This is part of the qualifying rounds for the All Ireland Amateur Drama finals of the Open and Confined competitions which are held in Athlone later in 2022.
This year’s adjudicator is Aodh McCay. He will give a summary of the performance each night and award the prizes on the final night.
Great Value entertainment at only €10 per night.
