Drama “Simey’s Shadow”

November 10, 2021 - November 14, 2021



The Gaelic Players are excited to get back on stage for the performances of the comedy, “Simey’s Shadow” by P.G. O’Dea and directed by Sandy Hanrahan.


This play is packed with hijinks and hilarity.

Time: 1950’s Ireland

Members of the cast are: Eileen O’Keefe Roxbee, Karl Ryan, Doreen Keogh Busca, Michael DePascale, Packy Lillis, and introducing Nicole Morin.

Andy and Tessie are fond of each other but based on Andy’s mistaken belief that as a poor farmer he could never offer Tessie the kind of future he believes she deserves he begins to evade her. That doesn’t stop Tessie’s frequent visits to his home, but due to Andy’s inexplicable coldness, Tessie is left talking with Andy’s two bachelor uncles. Each of them gets the notion that she has a matrimonial interest in him and they become rivals for her hand in matrimony. Now add the wants and desires of Tessie’s mother and Andy’s housekeeper and the shenanigans run rampant. Lots of buffoonery and “a bit of camouflaged canoodlin’ “ ensue.

After the year we’ve had, won’t you come out to enjoy a bit of laughter?
