I do not like thee, Dr. Fell!

Last weekend the Bornacoola players put on their performance of the Bernard Farrell play “I do not like thee, Dr. Fell!” in Bornacoola Community Centre. The cast was Ann McGuinness (who also produced the show) Ger Moran, Sharon Jones, Padraig Jones, Declan Bohan, Jonnie Duffy and Daran Shields with a great backroom staff. The play was performed to perfection to three full houses telling the story of a lock in meeting of six people with all sorts of issues. Defiantly a different type of play than we are used to going to. Well done to one and all.
