The Matchmaker 2023

From €20.50
8th Jun. - 10th Jun.

Michael Scott’s iconic production of JOHN B. KEANE’S hilarious dramatic comedy THE MATCHMAKER  opened in Spirit in January 2021 starring Anna Managhan and Des Keogh.   

The Production went on to tour Ireland, sell-out at the Edinburgh Festival, become  a Video and DVD  with Sony, a BBC Radio Series, and play ‘off Broadway’.

The Matchmaker follows the efforts of Dicky Mick Dicky O Connor to make matches for the lonely and lovelorn. 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 county 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.

Now returning due to popular demand, one of Ireland leading dramatic actresses Norma Sheahan joins OLIVER CALLAN in this iconic production at the Gaiety Theatre Dublin. Together they play a myriad of characters in this hilarious and earthy dramatic comedy.
