Readings for Clonmel Theatre Guild’s production of Brian Friel’s “The Communication Cord”

by admin on 17/10/2015

Clonmel Theatre Guild is proud and delighted to announce our next production is Brian Friel’s comedy “The Communication Cord.” Directed by Paul Kelly, this production takes to the stage in February 2016.

The Communication Cord centres around scheming barrister Jack McNeilis and his hapless friend, junior lecturer Tim O’Donoghue, and their attempts to get bombastic senator Dr Donovan to allow his daughter Susan to be Tim’s fiancée and, hopefully, at the same time secure a fulltime lecturing position for him.

To impress the senator, Jack brings Tim to his cottage in Donegal, which Tim pretends is his. The problem is that Tim is a high-strung academic who is nervous and not really comfortable about going through with the plan of pretending the house is his. So from the moment Susan and her father show up, things spiral hilariously out of control as Tim starts feeding everybody a different story, and then fights to keep his deception from unravelling completely.

Readings for this play take place on Tuesday & Wednesday 20th & 21st October 2015 in Moynihan’s Bar – Back Room, Gladstone Street, Clonmel at 8pm. ALL are welcome.
