ÁRAS Inis Gluaire, Belmullet, will welcome back the Beezneez Theatre Company next week.
The Leitrim-based theatre company returns to Belmullet after staging its production of ‘A Wake in the West’ last summer. Its new production, 'Tuesdays with Morrie’, will play the Belmullet venue on Friday, February 19, at 8.30pm and is part of a ten venue 24-performance tour.
Based on the best-selling book, this wonderful play tells the story of a professor and a student who meet after 16 years, when the student, Mitch, discovers that his much-loved tutor, Morrie, is suffering from a terminal illness.
They begin to spend Tuesdays together and Mitch learns lessons of life and death from Morrie. Directed by John McDwyer and featuring Michael Roper and Pat Feeley, ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’ is a warm, funny, compassionate and life-enhancing evening of theatre. 
McDwyer says that while this play is probably the most challenging work he has directed for the company, it was also the most rewarding. He also highly praised the acting performances delivered by Roper and Feeley.
If you have read the book, you won’t want to miss the play, and if you see the play, you will want to buy the book. Tickets are now on sale at €15/€12.
