Coolera stages 'Butterfly of Killybegs'

Due to the enormous popularity of “The Butterfly of Killybegs”, by Derry playwright Brian Foster, Coolera Dramatic Society will stage their production of this play for the third time!!!  The play takes place in Coolera Dramatic Society’s newly renovated drama centre at Kilmacowen Hall.  As seating is limited, early booking is advisable.  

An uproarious comedy about provincial life, the play takes a hilarious and desperate look at the fear of isolation, loneliness and rats!

Set in a Donegal fishing village where every woman has a past and no man a future, live Mary and her (supposedly) bedridden mother.   

Intrigue, sexual scandal, murder threats and “Bride of Dracula” lipstick are rife in this absorbing drama.  Mary waits longingly for her mother to die – her mother resolutely refuses to do so.  Grasping a final chance of love and freedom, Mary readily accepts a proposal of marriage.  But as she discovers to her horror, her intended is not all he appears to be.  

Directed by seasoned director and panto “baddie” Bobby Jones, the cast includes many Coolera regulars and pantomime stalwarts Stephen Devaney, Kieran O’Doherty, Mary McDonnell, Karen Gordon and Farrah Mahon.

Coolera Dramatic Society will bring this production of ‘The Butterfly of Killybegs’ to Kilmacowen Hall from Tuesday 2nd March to Saturday 6th March inclusive at 8pm nightly.  

Booking opens on Monday 22nd February at 071 9133289 
(Monday – Friday 6-10p.m., Saturday 2-6 p.m. )
