Synopsis of Play

 

“Ariel” tells the story of the FitzGerald family over a ten tear period, from the ruthlessly ambitious father Fermoy, who will, literally, make any sacrifice to succeed in the political world, to his wife Frances, a deeply unhappy and resentful woman. Fermoy’s brother Boniface, a recovering alcoholic monk, has his faith questioned when he becomes aware of past events that impact tragically on this deeply dysfunctional family, including the fate of Ariel and the effect on her brother Stephen and her sister Elaine, who already has a turbulent relationship with her mother.

 
History of Group

 

The Nenagh Players group was founded in 1943 and has been very active every year since. They won the All Ireland Confined Finals in 1998 with “Flight to Grosse Ile “ by Jim Minogue and again in 2000 with “April Bright “ by Dermot Bolger. They moved into the Open section in 2002 and have won many individual awards since then. They have qualified for the Athlone finals on seven occasions.
