The Sheare Street Social Club, a Play by Jim Cullinane
Jim Cullinane’s Play ‘The Sheare Street Social Club’ comes to the Town Hall Theatre Dungarvan on Wednesday 5th February in the form of a dramatized read with costume of the period, with filmed scenes and original music.
Jim bases his play on the social club which was located there in the 50s. Jim Cullinane, who left for America as a young man, married Anne Tyrell of Murphy Place Abbeyside. It is true to say that the couple welcomed many of Dungarvan’s young people to the States and helped them settle there.  Jim took with him memories of Abbeyside of that time; many of his characters are drawn from true life and indeed Abbeyside Characters. Obviously, he has given them new names, and this is a work of fiction drawn from true life in Abbeyside and Dungarvan of the period.
 Waterford County Museum/ Gallows Hill Community group are very grateful to Jim for giving us his play as a fund raiser to cover our continued   cost of investigation at Gallows Hill it is directed by Deirdre Collender and filmography by John Foley, with original music composed and performed by Donal Power.
 This is a new direction for Jim’s play which was acclaimed in New York where it was staged for one week. The introduction of filming scenes at Alice O’Connor’s Pub in Abbeyside and at Merry’s on the Main Street will add that extra dimension to the stage performance. The best of both worlds, Theatre and Film. The mechanics of controlling this aspect of the performance falls to Dirk Baumann who is an expert in his field. All of this, with a cup of tea or coffee promises to make for a wonderful evening. Keep in mind, this is for one night only, and the play has some adult themes, and will be unsuitable for children. Admission is €10
