Derry’s most successful playwright, Brian Foster, has announced a fantastic free giveaway for each of the four-night run in The Millennium Forum of his newest production, When The Bogside Spinster Met The Carndonagh Stud.
The first 200 people through the door each night will be handed a free DVD of the last ever performance of his mega-hit one-woman play, Maire A Woman of Derry, filmed live in the Millennium Forum back in 2013.
Brian said: “Tickets are really flying for this one. Nearly three-quarters of the tickets available for the opening night have already sold. So, as a little thank you to those attending each performance, I’d like to acknowledge their support by giving them a free gift upon entry.
As these DVDs normally retail at £17.50, they will in effect be getting a free ticket to the show. If not to be retained personally, the DVD would make a terrific Christmas present to send to a loved one abroad.”
When The Bogside Spinster Met The Carndonagh Stud has become the most eagerly anticipated play of 2016. It follows on the heels of Foster’s last hugely successful play, From The Camp To The Creggan, which was described by critics as ‘the funniest thing ever seen on a Derry stage’, drawing in a huge audience of nearly six-thousand over two runs.
Brian said: “Can this one live up to my last play? You bet it can. I’ve never had so much fun directing a play. The rehearsal room is buzzing and my brilliant cast are on fire! It’s a no-holds-barred sex comedy, the like of which has not been seen on a Derry stage before. It could get me run out of Derry. But I’ve never been one to shy away from taking risks.
“I think audiences will love it. I think they’ll laugh themselves silly. Yes, we may well have one or two walkouts by people who come to be offended, but the vast majority will love it.’
A screamingly funny adult comedy. An outrageous re-working of Brian Foster’s classic, The Butterfly of Killybegs. Strong language and sexual content throughout. If you’re easily offended … avoid. If not, grab a ticket now for the craziest, funniest, naughtiest show of 2016!!
When The Bogside Spinster Met The Carndonagh Stud plays in Derry’s Millennium Forum Theatre, Wed 16th Nov – Sat 19th Nov.
