Resolutions - A one act play about Homelessness


Homeless is a serious local and national issue and everyone knows someone who is affected by it, highlighting this issue is a brand new play written and directed by Martina Collender and the senior drama members (who are also the stars of the production) titled Resolutions.

"This play will be very true to life as in the process of making this production the cast went out and spoke to homeless people and those who work in this area and ‘Resolutions’ is what emerged. But it is not all bleak and sad there is also some humor in the play.”

Resolutions will be performed in St. Patrick's Gateway Centre on Friday the 24th and Saturday the 25th of January at 8pm sharp as well as a special matinee showing at 2pm on Saturday. All money from the door will go to support the work of ‘Helping Hands’ the local voluntary group that feeds homeless people at St. Patrick’s Gateway Centre every night throughout the year. Tickets will be available at the door admission for 7 euros and 5 euros concession. Suitable for people aged 16 +
