Chiara Reilly from Moyne will make her debut as a producer this month when she takes charge of Ray Cooney’s ‘Funny Money’ at the Players Theatre in Trinity College, as part of the Curtaincall Productions team.

Funny Money is a comedy set in the 1980s and centres around Henry Perkins, a mild-mannered accountant who accidentally swaps briefcases with another man and discovers a fortune inside. Henry is thrilled by his sudden good fortune, but his wife is less amused. Soon they’re joined by a policeman on the take, a sergeant on the hunt and the dreaded Mr Big, who has come looking for his money.

Chiara has always had a keen interest in drama and previously studied Performing Arts at Templemichael College in Longford and at the Gaeity School of Acting. For the past three years, she has organised performances to raise funds for Pieta House. These shows, which are a mix of comedy, improvisation and drama, have been a huge success, raising more than €5,000 for the charity.

Funny Money runs from April 9 – 13 at the Players Theatre, Trinity College, Dublin.
