Skibbereen Theatre Society won the Best Presentation award in the 2015 All-Ireland Confined Drama Finals in Kilmuckridge, Co Wexford, this weekend with their production of Family Plot by Darragh Carville.
The overall winners were the Kilrush Drama Group from Co Wexford with local playwright Billy Roche’s Poor Beast in the Rain. As well as winning the Best Presentation award, the Skibbereen group was also nominated for Best Lighting, while Carmel O’Driscoll and Ger Minihane were among the nominees for the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actor, respectively.
The West Cork group performed on the opening night on Friday, April 10th. Even though opening night is considered not to be the best one of the nine to be drawn for, their performance received a good adjudication from Patrick Sutton, setting the bar high for the other groups.
The set came in for great praise, thanks to the efforts of Barty Connolly, Gearoid McEoin, Charlie Keohane, Fachtna Hamilton, David Keohane, Gearoid McCarthy and Con Minihane.
