Clonmel Theatre Guild, following their hugely successful production of Cash on Delivery, and in conjunction with Acquired Brain Injury are now preparing for their forthcoming dinner theatre production Trouble in Paradise, which will be staged at Raheen House Hotel next month.

This will be a hilarious night of comedy consisting of three one-acts - Last Respects by Colin Calvert, directed by Carol Acheson; A Spy With A View by Robert Scott and directed by Maggie Morrissey; and Neil Simon’s Man On The Floor, directed by Patricia Harte.

Carol and Maggie are making their debut as directors and these three plays enable a large cast to showcase the wealth of talent in the guild.

In the guild’s endeavours to provide the people of Clonmel and the surrounding area with top-class entertainment and value for money, it is also very proud to have supported many charities and worthwhile causes. The most recent production Cash on Delivery enabled the guild to give a sizeable donation to the new ASD unit in St. Mary’s Irishtown for pre-school children with autism.

Trouble in Paradise will be staged in conjunction with the emergency services and the wonderful medics who deal with acquired brain injury. A number of events are being organised by the ambulance service, Gardai and many others and the guild are honoured and delighted to be part of this.

This dinner theatre promises a night full of laughter and good food while supporting a very worthy cause. The play runs from Wednesday, 12th June to Saturday, 15th June and tickets may be purchased at Marian’s Bookshop, O’Connell Street, Clonmel, tel. (052) 6123813.

The cast of Last Respects includes Paul Kelly, Jacqui Ahern Slater, Suzanne Dunne, Miriam O’Connell and Jim Malone.

The cast of Spy With A View is Brendan Barnett, Patricia Harte and Eugene O’Meara.

The Man On The Floor cast is Ger Meagher, Amanda Kirwan, Des Cunningham, Mary O’Keeffe, David Walshe and Ellie Mackey.
