FOR THE LAST TIME ON THE GAIETY STAGE THE SMASH HIT COMEDY THE MATCHMAKER
Based on the novella “Letters of a County Matchmaker” by JOHN B. KEANE
Starring MARY MCEVOY and JON KENNY
Dicky Mick Dicky O’Connor is going on his holidays to Ballybunion, but before he does he’s going back to The Gaiety Theatre up in Dublin one last time to arrange a few matches for the lost and lovelorn.
THE MATCHMAKER based on the novella “Letters of a County Matchmaker” by JOHN B. KEANE one of Ireland’s most celebrated writers, will be at the Gaiety Theatre for the last time, this November starring Mary McEvoy and Jon Kenny. Together they play a myriad of characters in this hilarious and earthy dramatic comedy.
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 people and creates a marvelously colorful 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.
