Honesty, reputations and first impressions stand trial in new play 'Solicitors’

Posted on: 1st July 2011

Follow two characters in the local magistrates; One is awaiting his verdict and she is awaiting her vindication. One has a history of offences and the other has a clean record.
Who would you deem to be a threat to society?

‘Solicitors', a story of deception, first impressions and how doing the right thing can harm your reputation is coming to The Playhouse this Saturday!

A new play by emerging local playwright J.P Conaghan (The Last Round), ‘Solicitors' premiered in September 2010 at University of Ulster's Foyle Arts Building. A storming performance at the Irish Student Drama Association festival in Galway, saw the play awarded Best Lighting Design, Best Sound Design and Best Supporting Actress, and was nominated for Best Set Design & Best Original Script. I.S.D.A Judge Derbhle Crotty said "‘Solicitors' is the one to watch".

J.P Conaghan said "Fahy Productions is embarking on a North and South tour of Ireland with this piece of new writing with comic dialogue and circumstances which will make you think before you speak."

Aine McCarron, theater programmer at The Playhouse said "We are just delighted to have this new work on stage. JP has been heavily involved in the playhouse for many years, sharing his talent as both as an actor and writer and we are very much looking forward to his latest venture."

‘Solicitors' will come to The Playhouse on Saturday July 2. at 8pm. Tickets are £7 and can be bought by clicking here or by contacting The Playhouse box office on (028)71 268027.
