From the team who brought you the hugely successful The Matchmaker, John B Keane, Jon Kenny, Mary McEvoy, Michael Scott now comes the hilarious THE SUCCESSFUL TD.  
 
Based on The Letters of A Successful TD and An Irish Minister of State by John B Keane and adapted for the stage by Jon Kenny, Mary McEvoy and Michael Scott the production stars Jon Kenny and Mary McEvoy. Directed by Michael Scott THE SUCCESSFUL TD is now running at The Gaiety Theatre, Dublin, and must end Saturday 18th February.

THE SUCCESSFUL TD follows the trials, tribulations, misadventures and hilarious antics of TULL McADOO as he seeks re-election to the Dail in the “October Elections”.
Written by John B Keane in 1967 he displays his edge for humour and satire that are uncomfortably close to the politics of today…. Peppered with Keane’s gallery of madcap characters this show will have you laughing at politics (in a  good way) from the start.
 
Tull has roped in the help of his faithful daughter Kate while his wife nurses her various ailments in bed or Lisdoonvarna, but his arch enemy Flannery, the local school teacher plans to scupper the election for Tull…
 
“Any man with a vote is a man to be respected, I’ll play with them, lie to them, sing dumb about them while I have a chance of a vote. That’s my livelihood. Don’t give me no more stink about the truth. Christ told the truth and they crucified him …..”
