The Chastitute, by John B Keane Riverside Theatre Group. Ballina Arts Centre

February 22, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - February 25, 2018 @ 10:00 pm

John B Keane’s The Chastitute is a hilarious look at ‘courting’ in rural Ireland. The play centres around John Bosco McLaine, a bachelor in his fifties who has decided it is high time he decided to look for a wife. As he has never had a serious relationship, he is what the church would call a ‘chastitute’, someone “without holy orders who has never laid down with a woman”.  He seeks help from the local matchmaker in an attempt to meet women. But he soon finds that despite his efforts courting is a tricky and competitive business, and the universe seems to be against his hopes of finding a companion. Poor John Bosco seems to be the unluckiest man in the world, well-meaning but always managing to put his foot in it or be fooled.

Tickets: €12 / €10. Early booking advised.
