The Market Place Theatre in Armagh is set for song and laughter this weekend, with the arrival of one of Northern Ireland’s leading amateur theatre groups, as well as one of Ireland’s leading singers.

Holywood Players return with their latest Alan Ayckbourn production, ‘Bedroom Farce’, which was a long running hit in both London and New York.

Trevor and Susannah, whose marriage is on the rocks, inflict their miseries on their nearest and dearest: three couples whose own relationships are tenuous at best. Taking place sequentially in the three beleaguered couples’ bedrooms during one endless Saturday night of co-dependence and dysfunction, beds, tempers, and domestic order are ruffled, leading all the players to a hilariously touching epiphany. ‘Bedroom Farce’ will be staged on Friday, May 30, at 8pm. Tickets are priced £11 each.

On Saturday, May 31, one of Ireland’s truly great singers, Cara Dillon, will take to the stage.

Tickets to see Cara Dillon perform are priced at £20 each. Tickets for all events can be booked through the Box Office on [028] 3752 1821, or online at
