Athea Drama Group Present ‘The Lonesome West’


Athea Drama Group are proud to present our 2019 production of the hilariously vicious play ‘The Lonesome West’ by Martin McDonagh. The Lonesome West is the finest brand of black comedy that will make you laugh when you really shouldn’t. With explosive moments and the darkest humour, it tells the story of two feuding bachelor brothers (John Sheahan & Tommy Denihan) and attempts to civilise them by the despairing local priest ( Michael O’Connor) and his devoted sidekick, Girleen (Annette O’Donnell).

The play will be staged at Con Colbert Memorial Hall, Athea on February 7th, 9th, 10th, 14th, 16th & 17th at 8pm. This play is recommended for over 12s due to strong language and adult themes. We will be implementing a booking system with open seating policy for 2019 where all bookings must be made in advance by texting/calling a designated number. This booking number will be made available next week. Watch this space!
