Proudly Presents

Cupid Wore Skirts

A 3 Act Comedy By Sam Cree

The action takes place in the living room of Andrew Coulter, a widower who lives with his elderly father and son, Brian. His married daughter, Daphne, comes in each day to take care of the men and ensure they are coping. When Daphne becomes pregnant her visits will have to be controlled and she fears for her male relatives' ability to cope.

Andrew's sister in law, the formidable spinster Aunt Harriet, is convinced they will not be able to manage and during a bout of banter with Andrew she makes a wager that he couldn't get a new wife within a week. Andrew advertises for a wife in the forlorn hope that he will win the bet and obtain a solution to his problems.

The fun really starts when we meet an array of very different suitors ranging from a ‘sexy' pop wannabe through to a ‘conservative' demure homemade wine connoisseur to a career husband hunter with a family in tow.

The production takes to the stage nightly March 3rd - March 6th in Parke Community Centre @ 8.30pm.  For Ticket information contact Ann on 094 9031128.  More information on email:
