SMOKIN’ PERFORMANCE Love/Hate actor Mary Murray stars in comedy drama ‘No Smoke Without Fire’.
Actor Mary Murray delivers a tour-de-force performance of the dynamic comic drama ‘No Smoke Without Fire’, which is being staged at The Linenhall Arts Centre in Castlebar tonight (Tuesday), June 5, at 8pm.
There’s €6,000 post-office-robbery money up for grabs and scandal knows no bounds, as six women gossip intermittently in the smoking area of a Dublin pub, leaving a trail of personal information behind them.
As the innocent along with the guilty suffer the stings of innuendo and the lashes of sharp tongues, a hilarious tale of crime and its consequences unfolds.
A comic drama by Paddy Murray, full of sharp Dublin wit, the story of Larry, the cash, the camper van and the deceased husband are all performed with ease by acclaimed actress, Mary Murray (who played Janet in RTÉ’s Love/Hate).
Described as ‘a perfect fit’ for the role by Eithne Shortall in the Sunday Times, Murray has a stage presence that has attracted rave reviews. “If ever there was an actor you wanted to see more of, it’s Mary Murray,” writes Peter Crawley in The Irish Times. “On stage she has always had a magnetic focus, a presence somewhere between no-nonsense control and a shiver of vulnerability … An actor of tremendous physical versatility and wit.”
