John B Keane's The Matchmaker

Town Hall Theatre

With Jon Kenny & Norma Sheahan.

Norma Sheahan joins Jon Kenny in an iconic production of this John B Keane classic at the Town Hall Theatre for one performance only! Together they play a myriad of 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. Using his inimitable way with words and his one sense of “devilment” and wit, Keane delves into the longings, hungers, fears and foibles of this collection of lonely country people and creates a marvelously colourful world, taking us back to a simpler time, when phones were few and far between and the only web was one left behind by spiders.
