Drama aficionados from across Tyrone have been enjoying a feast of dramatic delights at the Patrician in Carrickmore at the 54th Mid-Ulster Festival, which opened on Friday.
The annual feast of drama will be continuing every night until this Saturday (April 1), when the adjudicator’s decisions will be announced, and awards presented.
Patrons’ appetites have been whetted by the plays already staged over the past three nights. These included Butt Drama Circle’s production of ‘Darkness Echoing’, Ballyduff Drama Group’s production of ‘The Welkin’ and Newtownstewart Theatre Company’s production of ‘Midden’.
Still to come, and eagerly anticipated by patrons, are visits from Theatre 3 Newtownabbey with ‘The Price’ tonight (Monday), popular local group, Pomeroy Players, with ‘The Hen Night Epiphany’ tomorrow (Tuesday), Dundalk Theatre Workshop with ‘Faith Healer’ on Wednesday, Ballyshannon Drama Society with ‘A Delicate Balance’ on Thursday, and Glenamaddy Players with ‘Proof’ on Friday.
Closing the festival on Saturday will be Prosperous Dramatic Society with ‘Oleanna’ all the way from Co Kildare.
l Nightly tickets for all of the remaining productions are still available and are priced at £8. These can be purchased at the Patrician each night or booked by contacting the Festival Box, which is open daily from 10am until 5pm
