Due to unforeseen circumstances, this show has been postponed until 2024.
The Civic are excited to welcome back the iconic production of John.B Keanes ‘The MatchMaker’ by the brilliantly talented Michael Scott. Returning to the main stage on the 23rd of June for one night only, this is a must see for all theatre lovers.
Follow a myriad of characters in this hilarious and earthly dramatic comedy. The play follows the efforts of Dicky Mick Dicky O’Connor to make matches for the lonely and lovelorn.
Using his inimitable way with words and his one sense of “devilment” and wit, Keane delves into the longings, hungers, fears and foibles of this collection of lonely country people and creates a marvellously colourful world, taking us back to a simpler time, when phones were few and far between and the only web was one left behind by spiders.
