AN GRIANAN Theatre in Letterkenny presents Bill C Davis’ clerical comedy Mass Appeal featuring top local talent from the amateur drama scene. Directed by Sean McCormack, the play reunites The 39 Steps’ Eoghan Mac Giolla Bhride and John Ruddy. Eoghan stars as Father Tim Farley, highly popular with his parishioners due to his charm, wit, easy-going manner and entertaining but unchallenging sermons.

One Sunday, seminarian Mark Dolson (John Ruddy) interrupts Father Farley’s sermon to challenge his stance on the ordination of women. The pastor is both outraged and intrigued by the young man, and asks to have him assigned to work with him. Each man has something to teach the other about how to perform his priestly duties.

Mass Appeal continues this Saturday, August 10 and Saturday, August 17 August at 8pm and tickets cost €12 (€10 concession).
