The Inkwell Drama Group to put on their production Betwixt and Between

The Inkwell Drama and Theatre Group are delighted to announce that they are back in production and are gearing up to perform Michael J Ginnelly’s hysterical comedy Betwixt and Between in The Inkwell Theatre, Tracton Arts and Community Centre, Minane Bridge on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of November. The drama group have had a year’s hiatus following the success of their sell out comedy A Widow’s Paradise but now their feet are itchy to thread the boards and once again with professional director, Valda Rumley, at the helm, they hope to provide three nights of entertainment and repeat the enjoyment provided by their many former productions.

Betwixt and Between by the infamous Michael J Ginnelly is a play set in modern Ireland and centres on the Carmody family, Tom and Mary and their grown-up son, Sean and daughter, Joan. Winning the lottery may be many people’s dream but it proves less fortuitous for this family under the command of Tom, whose modus operandi is to scrimp and scrape and always present himself as just “two sandwiches away from the poorhouse”. It is a very tangled web indeed he gets his family to weave in an attempt to conceal their good fortune. Stories are spun and trouble follows trouble as they struggle to keep pace with their ever- changing tales. Throw odd and nosey neighbours, Liam and Flora, disgruntled husband, Zac and prosecuting Garda Inspector, Madge into the mix and things are sure to take a downward turn. For Tom especially, adjustment to change is a challenge- will he always be a little betwixt and between?

With autumn evenings turning fast into winter nights, what better tonic than to head to this hilarious comedy in the cosy and intimate Inkwell theatre for a night that promises a barrel of laughs.
