Event description

Description

Written and directed by Eileen Kavanagh

Special 'Cancer Week' Performance

Keeping Abreast is not a play cancer but rather a play about men, women and their families dealing with illness. Funny and poignant, the play is inspired by real people like Rita who tells doctor Feel-good “I couldn’t care less what you do to me” and Moira, whose dog Bertie is terrified of her charity shop wig “The little fecker was getting ready to have a go at my head.”

Cast: The Venue Players (of the Venue Theatre Ratoath, County Meath)

“The play shows the people behind the statistics, the fund raising pages and the hospitals in a way that is not only insightful but inspiring and at times surprisingly funny” - The Scotsman

A note from the playwright:
“The play was written for my sister Kathleen who has made wonderful recovery. A heartfelt go raibh maith agat to our doctors and nurses. To Kathleen with love.”
