Tom Lyons, Leticia Cavicchioli and Sarah Duke appear in the Backstage Theatre Group production of Bernard Farrell's ‘Bookworms’.

Backstage Theatre Group will be staging their production of Bernard Farrell's Bookworms from Thursday, February 15 to Saturday, February 17 at Backstage Theatre, Longford.

Bookworms tells the story of how Book Club hostess Ann is struggling to stay calm, desperate to deliver the perfect evening of literary classics and late night canapes.

But when the all-female group invite their husbands to join the club, and a mysterious figure pays a visit from an upstairs room, everyone is forced to contend with a lot more than just Virginia Woolf.

Opinions are challenged, suspicions aroused and tempers flare as their daily lives unravel into a saga to rival even the most outrageous fiction.

Under the direction of Declan Donohoe, the characters will be brought to life by Sarah Duke, Tom Lyons, Leticia Cavicchioli, Maggi McKenna, Ríona Lynch, Tony Wadd and Ollie Kenny.

Tickets are available from Backstage Theatre box office on 0433347888 or www.backstage.ie Tickets cost €15/€12 with a special opening night offer of €10.
