Hit National tour comes to Roscommon Arts Centre

Galway theatre company Jasango are back with a bang this season with a new production of Geraldine Aron’s hilarious ‘My Brilliant Divorce’ at Roscommon Arts Centre on Tuesday 19th June, 8 pm.

  Following their astounding success with Bombshells - including a two-year tour of Ireland and an American tour culminating in awards for Best Play and Best Ensemble in the 2010 Bethlehem Press Awards Jasango are on track for another hit with this wittily observant and achingly funny play.

  Jasango are at Roscommon Arts Centre for one night on Tuesday 19th June at 8 pm and the travelling troupe look forward to raising the roof with laughter with this great ‘girls night out treat’!

   ‘My Brilliant Divorce’ had its world premier in 2001 and went on to be nominated for an Olivier Award, selling out theatres all over the world. Laugh out loud comedy, combined with heart-wrenchingly honest moments, make this an unforgettable show that both engages and entertains.

  The title role is played by Angela Ryan, co-founder of Jasango Theatre. Angela completed an Honours MA in Drama and Theatre Studies at NUI Galway and worked in professional theatre and film for ten years before establishing Jasango with Jasmin Finn in 2009.

  ‘My Brilliant Divorce’ is an acting tour-de-force that highlights Ryan’s incredible energy and range as she swaps roles and accents at break-neck speed.  Critics have commended her previous work.

  ‘My Brilliant Divorce’ is directed by the esteemed George B. Miller, Artistic Director of Selkie Theatre. Miller also directed Jasango’s Bombshells and has an impressive array of Irish and American directorial successes under his belt in a career spanning over 40 years.

  Tickets are priced €15/€12 and to reserve tickets for this fantastic show contact the Roscommon Arts Centre contact 090-6625824 or log onto
