The Railway Theatre Group Return to Stage for summer performances

The Railway Theatre group return to stage this August for two performances of their acclaimed play ‘Three Plus One’. The play which was written by Mary Ellen Conlon will be staged in the Linenhall Arts Centre, Castlebar on August 18th and will also be performed in the Town hall Theatre, Claremorris as part of The Non Prophet Organisation’s Claremorris Community Arts & Heritage Festival on August 20th.

The Railway Theatre Group was formed in 2015, when four local Mayo ladies joined together with the common ambition of devising an original piece of Irish Drama. Over many months, Stacey Flaherty, Sharon Cameron, and Ainé Mc Nicholas under the direction of Mary Ellen Conlon worked at developing ‘Three Plus one’ . The play is based on fictional characters and explores the complexity of female relationships.  The play examines the dynamic of three sisters, the unlikely support of three strangers and the complex and highly nuanced nature of the mother/daughter relationship. While the play focuses on serious life issues there are many light hearted moments especially in the character of homeless lady ‘Nancy’ and her dog ‘Danny’.

The play, which was originally staged in January 2016, displayed powerful performances from the cast of three who each play the part of three different characters. For the summer performances, Drama student and Kiltimagh native Adrienne Walsh will join the cast. 

“A cleverly written play performed very well by an amazingly dedicated and talented group of people: don't miss the chance to see it!”

“It was brilliant, so interestingly different, covering so many common issues, very well done”

“Brilliant, entertaining and extremely well written. Acting superb and an extremely enjoyable outing”

Tickets for the Linen Hall Arts Centre performance can be booked at  http://www.thelinenhall.com or by contacting 094 9023733.

We've got talent teeming in our town and the surrounding areas and we're slowly but surely weaving them into a wonderful weekend for the summer solstice.

Final line up is yet to be announced but we've got trad music, theatre and drum and dance lined up.

No time to say anymore, much to do and too few to do it all. Volunteers are welcome to come join us for our Monday evening production meetings or Wednesday drumming rehearsals.

See you soon.

All you've got to do is spread the word around the world, offer your expertise or any services, support or benefit in kind you can afford to for our Midsummer festival. Twould be a real bummer if we made our Midsummer come true and not have you there to share in the festivities. 

 We've got theatre and theatricality with Our Midsummer Dream production as we imagine Shakespearean should be. Free for all the family with lots of local pageantry. Artivists and Artisans, Myth-makers and dreamers, Fairies, Folkloric music and forum theatre, Trad music and theatrical tradition of in keeping with Dionysian festivities created for and by the community to celebrate a long and fun-filled life on the longest day. This is only the beginning and long may it continue.
