Longford Town, Co. Longford
24 March 2023
Norma Sheahan and Jon Kenny bring John B. Keane's classic comedy "The Matchmaker" to Backstage Theatre Longford.

Michael Scott’s iconic production of John B. Keane's hilarious dramatic comedy THE MATCHMAKER opened in Spirit in January 2001 starring Anna Managhan and Des Keogh.

Now in its 21st year, the acclaimed Norma Sheahan joins Jon Kenny (of comic duo d’Unbelievables) to play a myriad of characters in this hilarious and earthy comedy drama about the efforts of Dicky Mick Dicky O'Connor as he makes matches for the lonely and the lovelorn.

With a deft sense of devilment and wit, Keane delves into the longings, hungers, fears and foibles of this collection of lonely country people and creates a marvellously colourful world that takes us back to a simpler time when phones were few and far between and the only web was the one left behind by spiders.
