Corofin Dramatic Society

Corofin Dramatic Society has a long, proud theatrical history. Founded in 1950 we strive to continually improve our dramatic standards. A major milestone occurred in 2008 when we won the Confined All-Ireland Final with our production of The Beauty Queen of Leenane. A long-time ambition was achieved in 2012 when we tread the boards of the Dean Crowe stage in Athlone with The Subject was Roses by Frank D. Gilroy. We were placed 3rd that year (no mean achievement for our first appearance). We have qualified for Athlone on four occasions since: most recently in 2017 & 2018 with our productions of The Cripple of Inishmaan and Big Maggie.

Life Sucks by Aaron Posner

In this brash reworking of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya, a group of old friends, ex-lovers, estranged in-laws, and lifelong enemies gather to grapple with life’s thorniest questions — and each other. What could possibly go wrong? Incurably lustful and lonely, hapless and hopeful, these seven souls collide and stumble their way towards a new understanding that LIFE SUCKS! Or does it?
