Dráma á léamh ag an scríbhneoir John McManus
Award winning playwright John Mc Manus will deliver a performed reading of his play “Danger Money” – “a beautiful ‘close-up’ of rural Irish life”, full of heartache and humour. The story is told by Teddy ‘the Mucker’ Tucker who emigrated to London, it was only ever meant to be a stepping stone for him but somehow he stayed there for over thirty years. Until one day he abruptly abandoned his friends and his job and returned home to North Leitrim. Where we find him with a lot on his mind: Why did he ever come back to Leitrim? why did that Danny fella ever leave Ventry? why does’nt his landlord take a drink? are dead people flying around as birds? should snakes receive the Free Travel Pass? who puts plasterboard on a shower? why is he gathering turf in the bog when when he does’nt have a fireplace?.
