Ballycogley Players Drama Group, Wexford

Dreamland By Jim Nolan

Synopsis

In the summer of 1934, in a village on the south coast Johnny Kinnane, a returned ‘Yank’ has a plan to create an Amusement Park around the bones of a giant whale that’s washed up on the seashore. A cast of spirited characters in his orbit display their hopes and disappointments and enduring goodness. Into the unspoken horrors of Ireland’s recent history and the threats of Blueshirt bullies to impose their way, come a Jewish Musician and his daughter, fleeing from the fomenting atmosphere of Hitler’s rise to power. A complex thought-provoking play that manages to be heartwarming and entertaining despite the weighty subject matter.

Group History

Ballycogley Players were founded over 40 years ago. They perform Three One Act Comedies during Wexford Opera Fringe Festival and South Wexford areas each year. They have been regular performers on the Amateur Drama Festival Circuit, winning the Confined All Ireland in 2006 with The Weir and 2018 with The Night Alive, both written by Conor McPherson. The Group also undertake charity performances for local organisations and communities each year. The Group is delighted to welcome new members from teenage upwards.
