Auditions for Lafferty’s Wake
by Susan Turlish (comedy with music)
July 30th and 31st
1836 W. SR 32
Director Doug Davis announces auditions for Lafferty’s Wake by Susan Turlish. Production dates are September 29, 30 and October 6, 7, 8, 13, 14 & 15.
Our darlin’ wild rover, Charlie Lafferty, is being waked in grand style in his home away from home, the local pub. The audience joins Charlie’s widow, his sweet daughter, bumbling son-in-law, the parish priest, and the savvy innkeeper as they celebrate the life and times of ramblin’, gamblin’ Lafferty. Two hours of sheer fun replete with jokes, jigs, games, stories and songs including such old favorites as “Molly Malone”, “Whiskey in the Jar” and “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling” guarantee a festive, audience pleasing frolic.
RORY FINN – Owner and publican of ‘Rory’s Pub’ and Master of Ceremonies for Lafferty’s Wake. A great friend of Charlie Lafferty and his family for many years. Warm, funny, outgoing, he interacts easily with the mourners on stage and in the audience.
FATHER TERRANCE PETTIGREW – The parish priest, Father knows all and everyone in Ballyslattery. Father finds individuals in the audience who resemble film, TV or political personalities and uses this to involve audience members throughout the show.
KATHLEEN LAFFERTY – Charlie’s widow and Mother of their thirteen children. She is earthy, funny and very much the fighter when she has to be. She loved Charlie very much.
MARGARET ‘MAGGIE’ CLANCY – Lafferty’s daughter, newly married to Patrick whom she adores.
PATRICK CLANCY – Lafferty’s son-in-law, newly married to Maggie whom he adores. Not the brightest bulb on the tree but means well.
MOLLY GREANY – An old friend of Lafferty (unbeknowst to Kathleen) who appears at his wake. Attractive, sexy and full of life.
LAFFERTY-OF-OLD – The man himself. A rambler and a gambler, the quintessential Wild Rover.
