Willy Russel’s ‘Stags and Hens’

Willy Russel’s ‘Stags and Hens’

On December 17, at 8pm, Down the Rabbit Hole Drama Group will be performing Willy Russell’s play “Stags and Hens” in the Parochial Hall, Cahir. The play is set in a trashy 80’s nightclub where Linda and Dave (bride and groom) end up in the same venue for their hen and stag parties. Peter (Linda’s rockstar ex) just happens to be playing in the club that night and of course throws a spanner in the works! Please come along and support your local arts, a fantastic night is guaranteed. Tickets are on sale on the door at €E15 per ticket or can be booked on 0861061092.

The party season was kicked off in style with a really enjoyable night that involved a very tasty meal, followed by drinks and some dancing (of course!). Thanks to everyone for working together throughout the year to make the club the success that it is and we’re all looking forward to more great diving experiences in 2012.
