Well-known local playwright, David Gilna, who is fresh from the success of his play, Unsung Hero, is setting up an acting class for adults in Swords.
Swords man, Gilna told the County Leader that he was approached by a number of local people, who have expressed an interest in getting lessons, and he was delighted to oblige. “It’s all kicking off in the Lord Mayor’s in Swords on Wednesday, 8th March and all beginners are welcome. Joe Savage from the Lord Mayors is doing a great job for local artists, for which he should be commended,” he said.
Upstairs in the Lord Mayors is fast becoming the home of some excellent plays and it was where Gilna held the premiere of ‘Unsung Hero.’ The popular venue also hosted ‘Heartstrings’ – A collection of short plays, by another local playwright, Stephen Maguire last week.
