Banshee Makers for the Courthouse Theatre

Stagemad Theatre Company presents Banshee Makers in Lismore Heritage Centre’s Courthouse Theatre on Saturday 6th November 2010.

Written by Ger Bourke and directed by James Power Banshee Makers is a tragi-comedy set in a now run down coal yard on the banks of the river Suir in the 1970's.

The play is a story of love and passion and of the craving that the absence of both can leave in the human heart. Banshee Makers examines the lives of three coal men; Scooter the simple minded youth who dreams of the family he never knew, embittered and world weary Nix, Charlie, the married-Lothario and Kathleen, the lonely and desperate office clerk who works with them.

By unraveling the fabric of those ordinary lives we are reminded that there is often nothing as extraordinary or deceptive as that which is apparently ordinary. It is a story of shadows that can be permanently cast over lives and the damage those shadows can do. Welcome to the ranks of the left behind.

Banshee Makers represents the start of a busy drama season in the Heritage Centre; Lismore Dramatic Society will present Steel Magnolias in the Courthouse Theatre 25th-28th November 2010 and 2nd-5th December.

Tickets for Banshee Makers are available now from the Heritage Centre on 058-54975 priced €10.00.
