The Matchmaker by John B Keane, one of Ireland’s most celebrated
writers, will play for one night only at Skibbereen Town Hall on
Saturday, October 25th, at 8pm.
The production stars television favourite Mary McEvoy, best known for
her role as Biddy in the long-running RTÉ series, Glenroe. Irish actor
and comedian Jon Kenny who was part of the Irish comic duo
d’Unbelievables with Pat Shortt joins Mary to complete the cast. Kenny
is best known outside Ireland for appearing in the Channel 4 sitcom
Father Ted. Together, they play a myriad characters in this hilarious
and earthy dramatic comedy.
The play follows the efforts of Dicky Mick Dicky O’Connor to make
matches for the lonely and lovelorn. It is directed by Michael Scott.
