Shindig Theatre Company presents Dealing with Dougie By Jim McClenaghan and Carl Campbell Thursday 15th March 2012 to Friday 16th March 2012 8PM

A home poker game is hastily arranged by Ignoramus forty-something know-all Dougie in defiance of his fearsome wife Helen and her decision to attend an all-women ‘clothes' party.

Dougie's guests include long-time mate and fellow amateur philosopher Barry, mature student Bernard and Helen's gay younger brother Daniel.

Hard-hitting humour and topical debate abound as Dougie and Barry's fragile and self-serving egos are repeatedly confounded by the well-informed and progressive-thinking Daniel who is ably abetted by Bernard in swatting down the ill-informed and prejudiced duo.

As the drink flows and the insults are traded, Barry and Dougie end up with black eyes and a lot more besides. Both men get a chance to learn from a difficult experience. But will they?

An all star local cast will head up the production by Shindig Theatre Company, including local entertainer Mickey Doherty, actor and director Jim Lecky, Gerry Dorrity, Helen Mc Laughlin and Conor Barr.

Tickets: £11/ £8
