Miserly masterpiece at the Arts Centre

Transport yourself away from all the current economic doom and gloom and enjoy a laugh as Moliere’s classic comedy ‘The Miser’ will run at the Roscommon Arts Cetnre in Friday, 25th June.

The Lyric Theatre in Belfast will visit twenty different towns and cities throughout the island of Ireland with a hilarious new adaptation of Moliere’s classic comedy ‘The Miser’. Scottish actor Andy Gray, best known for his role in television comedy series Rab C Nesbitt, will play the title role in this period costume drama, which promises matchmakers, buried treasure, forbidden romance and missing Lords in a spiral of outrageous, comic confusion.

Avril Dooher, Venue Manager at Roscommon Arts Centre said, “We are delighted to welcome Belfast’s Lyric Theatre on their first visit to Roscommon. This is a hilarious take on a classic play with a few very modern twists, brought to life by an established cast and we know that the audiences here in Roscommon will enjoy it.”

Adapted by David Johnston, and directed by Dan Gordon, the production will tour from 31 May to 9 July visit other venues including Coleraine, Armagh and Downpatrick, Derry, Omagh, Enniskillen, Antrim, Lisburn, Monaghan, Galway, Mullingar, Portlaoise, Kilkenny, Drogheda, Virginia, Sligo and Letterkenny.
