The Matchmaker

This hilarious and much loved play follows the efforts of Dicky Mick Dicky O’Connor to match make for the lonely and lovelorn from all parts of the country. John B. Keane’s marvelously mischievous wit coupled with his unparalleled way with words is at the core of this much celebrated hit production, taking us back to a simpler time when even phones were few and far between and the only web was the one left behind by spiders!
