BIG MAGGIE comes to Moyvane!

You can see John B. Keane’s "Big Maggie" in The Marian Hall this Saturday night, March 6th and at the same time help provide funds for a very good cause. The play will be performed by Tullylease Drama Group and all proceeds from the night will be donated to the Goradaishe Orphanage in Belarus. If you are wondering what Moyvane and Goradaishe have in common, the link is Marie & Louise Behan who are heading to Belarus in April to help in the orphanage. And if you’re wondering what the connection with Tullylease Drama Group is, Joanne O’Flaherty is a member of the cast of Big Maggie so give yourself a night out, knowing that you are helping children that are less fortunate than you. Your support will be much appreciated.
