Same Old Moon
Thurs 16th – Sat 18th Feb 8pm €15/€12
Presented by Backstage Theatre group written by Geraldine Aron
Same Old Moon is a very funny, charming yet honest look at Irish
family life through the eyes of Brenda Barnes. We follow her life’s
story as an aspiring writer from aged nine into her forties, from
Dublin to Galway and then London. We see the eccentric ways of
the characters who moulded her life’s story, her fiery Irish family,
her put-opon and sometimes hot tempered mother, and her wilful,
self-destructive and domineering father.
The cast of 8 actors, some playing multiple roles, is Christine O
Brien, Davy Flaherty, Declan Neville, Eileen Murphy, Niamh Quinn-
Hanley, Mary Killane, Maureen Dunne and Phil Cox.
The play is directed by Ollie Kenny who recently gave Longford
audiences the highly acclaimed production of Blythe Spirit.
