Presented by Loco and Reckless Productions in association with Nomad Theatre Network, the spellbinding â€˜The Far Off Hillsâ€™ by Lennox Robinson is coming to the Backstage Theatre in Longford on Friday, December 5 and Saturday, December 6 at 8.30pm.
Directed by Mikel Murfi, the show stars Steve Blount (Moone Boy, and HBOâ€™s Game of Thrones), Julie Sharkey (Fair City), Caoimhe Oâ€™Malley (Reign) and Niamh McGrath (Calvary), with set and costume design by Sabine Dargent and lighting design by Nick McCall.
Set in a sleepy town in rural Ireland, everything is set to change in the lives of Patrick Clancy and his three daughters.
One of the stars, Julie Sharkey, is from Ballaghadereen Co-Roscommon, and has previously told the Leader that she spent â€œtons of time in Granard as a childâ€, as her mother hails from the area.
She is excited to return back to Longford as she has â€œfond memories of Granardâ€.
Julie also revealed that â€˜The Far off Hillsâ€™ has been â€œa joyâ€ to work on.
A hilarious comedy show, not to be missed, â€˜The Far off Hills is guaranteed to leave the audience rolling in their seats.
