About Second Honeymoon
The Glen Theatre Drama Group Banteer are both thrilled and honoured to be performing in the beautiful majestic Olympia Theatre on Sunday 3 September with the hilarious comedy Second Honeymoon written by Sam Cree and directed by Tadhg O Keeffe. Set in a seaside guest house, the play features, amongst others, the prim and proper land-lady, her flirty servant girl Vera, newly weds Stephen and Sally, Mr & Mrs Mansfield, long-term resident Mrs Hartnett and Agnes and Frank who are celebrating their 25th anniversary. Add to the mix the hilariously camp Victor, Agnes’ old flame Malcolm, and the village’s very own sailor, the local taxi driver and you have on your hands a brilliantly funny interpretation of this renowned play.
Comedies work well for the group who are twenty six years running with three of the founder members involved in acting, casting and direction. We are also very fortunate to have in the cast our very good friend Frank Twomey of "Santa Ponsa" and Funny Friday fame,
Frank has taken some time out of his busy schedule to perform with us.
