Further success for Skibbereen Theatre Society in Cork drama festivals

Skibbereen Theatre Society emerged top of the four entrants in the confined section to win at the 50th West Cork Drama Festival with the bittersweet Frank Vickery comedy A Kiss on the Bottom, while Carmel O’Driscoll was once again awarded best actress and the group also won the overall prize for best set.

They finished second at the North Cork Drama Festival in Charleville, where Carmel O’Driscoll also won the best actress award. With three festival results still to come, they now have just about enough points gained on the festival circuit to earn them a place in the All-Ireland confined finals, which will be held at the Wexford Opera House the second week of April.
