Where it all began
A Selection of Stage Plays
By Tomás Ó’Riain
This book features three more plays by Tomás Ó’Riain.
Apple Annie tells a great tale of a normal woman selling apples and second hand clothes from a stall in Dublin’s Iveagh markets and manages to be a secret benefactor to the educational needs of her three step-sisters.
A great story full of heart.
Milo’s Ghost is based on a true tale from early 1920’s Ireland. The manner of Milo’s death is a replica of that which occurred back then and in those times they did not have the advantages of Exorcisms or Séances!!
A hilarious three act comedy.
What the Puck:
What the Puck! A long lost rich uncle from Australia who may not be all that he seems. A stone digging pot bellied pig. A long lost treasure.
The marriage proposal to the Widow Cassidy who has a large Endowment policy, or does she??
A mad cap comedy and is definitely one for the amateur drama company that likes a laugh.
