Beezneez bring McDwyer comedy to Roscommon

A Beezneez play is always an event to look forward to and patrons of Roscommon Arts Centre will be delighted to hear that Beezneez are back with their latest production ‘Turning Mammy’, on Tuesday, September 29, at 8 pm as part of a 13-venue national tour.

  John McDwyer describes his new play as a comedy with a few serious bits.  Sisters Martha and Mary live together on the family farm. 

  Mary is involved in a long-term search for her baby, which was adopted at birth, while Martha is involved in a long-term wait for neighbour Ambrose’s Mammy to die, so that she can finally marry the love of her life. 

  That’s as simple as it gets, however, as we discover dysfunctional people with deep secrets and passions. 

  Mary obsessed with her search for her baby; Martha obsessed with her search for love through her neighbour, Ambrose who, in turn, is ruled by his care for an ill mother. 

  But are these people anything that they seem to be and do they really understand each other’s needs? All is revealed in a hilarious and sad evening when Ambrose finally comes courting.

  This is John’s ninth stage play and his plays have been performed all over the world..

  This is a play with as many hilarious set-ups as moments of melancholic sadness and is bound to be another Beezneez winner and an unmissable evening of pure theatre.
