Group September 82 Cast

The Group Theatre cast of September 82 are joined by Micheál Ó Muircheartaigh on stage some years ago.

THE Group Theatre Tralee is getting ready for the new drama season which begins on the first week of September, with a production to be staged this November.

The Group is at present rehearsing Mike O Halloran’s new play ‘A Queen’s Speech’ which will be presented in Siamsa Tire on November 27-28.

‘A Queen’s Speech’ will also have previews in another venue prior to the Siamsa Tire run.

Along with ‘A Queen’s Speech’, The Group Theatre Tralee will also run another production and are offering anybody with an interest in drama an opportunity to be part of another production which will be presented after Christmas.

The group, which was founded in 1969, has produced over 100 plays in that time and has been involved in production of classic and contemporary plays, including the works of Oscar Wilde, John B Keane, Bryan McMahon.

It was the first amateur drama group to bring ‘Red Roses and Petrol’ by Joseph O’Connor to the stage.

New works by Muiris McCurtain, and Mike O’Halloran were also staged by The Group.

The Group Theatre presented the world premier of The Rapparees winner of the Eamonn Keane full length play award at Listowel Writers Week.

‘The Praties They Grow Small’ by Muiris MacCurtain was a huge production which filled houses in Siamsa Tire on two different runs, telling the story of The Great Famine.

‘September ’82’, an original play by Mike O’Halloran, was hugely successful and ran in several venues around the country.
