Last Train from Holyhead

Out of Time Theatre have a new production starting soon in the Teachers Club on Parnell Square. Last Train from Holyhead by Bernard Field stars Dave Duffy ("Fair City"), Stephen Gorman ("Leap Year") and Deirdre Jones ("Ripper Street"). Here's how the theatre company describes the play:
Two men discover more than they bargained for as they while away the night on a train to nowhere. With the help of drink, poker and a beguiling Gipsy, they explore the void within themselves through their experience of each other.

Drink, cards and prophecy, not to mention comedy and tragedy, pervade this intriguing piece of theatre which examines identity and how the seeds sown in the past have a habit of sprouting, whether we like it or not.

There have been several previous productions of the play. These seem to have received good reviews, so let's hope this latest production is equally successful. It's the theatre company's second production.

Last Train from Holyhead runs from July 16th to 28th at 8 pm each evening from Monday to Saturday. Tickets normally cost €15 (€12 concession), but only €10 for the previews on July 16th and 17th. There are also Saturday matinees costing €10.
