Drama in Ireland
For a small island, Ireland has made a disproportionate contribution to drama and theatre on the world stage. From the ancient Book of Fermoy, which contains plays written in the vernacular, to playwrights such as Synge, Yeats and Gregory, drama continues to be an integral part of Irish Culture.
ICCNE Drama Group
We are fortunate to have a very strong resident drama group here at the ICCNE. Giving rousing performances based on Irish plays, the group contributes enormously to Irish culture.
The ICCNE Drama Group has been meeting regularly and presenting plays and dramatic literature by Irish writers since July 2001. The group was first formed at the ICCNE by Paddy and Marie Curley to present and promote drama to the members of the Irish Cultural Centre and the surrounding community. Since its inception, we have presented a number of productions for a wide variety of audiences. The group has grown to 15+ and all have tremendous fun rehearsing and performing our shows.
Anybody with an interest in any facet of a production is welcome--be it acting, backstage, make-up, constumes, set design and construction.
