DUE to its phenomenal success, Many Young Men of Twenty is returning to Ballina Arts Centre on tonight and tomorrow night (February 20 and 21) following five sell-out performances so far.
It’s not very often the venue sees a play of this magnitude, a record breaking 1,000 people having seen it up to this point. And the phone just keeps on ringing...
So don’t miss this final chance to see John B. Keane’s Many Young Men of Twenty by Ballina-based Riverside Theatre Company on a local stage.
Written in 1946, this poignant play by one of Ireland’s greatest playwrights explores the many sad, tragic aspects of the enforced emigration, which was such a scourge of Irish life for much of the 20th century.
The play is set in a public house, the natural home of the impromptu song - and there are many songs in the production, as well as colourful characters, language and a great deal of humour.
Directed by Ray Collins, the play is as topical now as it was when it was written. Tickets (€12/€10) for tonight's (Saturday) show have sold out but contact Ballina Arts Centre now on (096) 73593 or log on to www.ballinaartscentre.com to secure tickets for tomorrow (Sunday).
