Compántas Lir

Compántas Lir is an amateur drama group based in Claregalway and Carnmore areas of Co. Galway.  It was founded in 1983 by a small group of local drama buffs whose goal was to nurture a love of amateur drama in the area.  The group has grown since then, and now boasts over 50 members, and two All-Ireland Confined Titles.  “Nine” by Jane Shepard, directed by Caoimhe McLoughlin, won the One-Act Title in 2014, and “Proof” by David Auburn, directed by Dermot Hession, won the Three-Act Title in 2016.  The group also host an annual Autumn Supper Theatre for the community where they stage two one-act comedies.  They look forward to competing in Three-Act Open Competition in 2019.

Same Old Moon by Geraldine Aron

Chosen to re-open the Oxford Playhouse in 1991, and then seen in London’s West End, Same Old Moon shows us scenes in the life of Brenda Barnes, aspiring writer.  We follow her from age nine to forty-ish, and we see through her eyes her eccentric and sometimes fiery family; her wilful and self-destructive Dad, her put-upon sometimes hot-tempered Mum and many others.  We witness hilarious scrapes, brought on when her imagination and intelligence comes against the restrictions of Irish and English custom and society.  A charming, but not uncritical, look at a family life.
