Shoot the Crow brings comedy to Burnavon stage

COOKSTOWN audiences are in for a treat on Thursday 22nd March when Owen McCafferty’s acclaimed comedy draw ‘Shoot the Crow,’ arrives in town for one night only.

Belfast based Prime Cut Productions, who are celebrating their 20th year in theatre, are bringing the production to the Burnavon Arts and Cultural Centre as part of a 16 venue all Ireland tour.

An hilarious and moving homage to the working man, ‘Shoot the Crow’ centre on a day in the life of four tilers. Ding Ding, Petesy, Randolph and Socrates are working on a Belfast building and dreaming of better things.

There’s an opportunity to make a few quid on the sly, but not all of them can commit the same petty crime.

The comedy drama considers the relationships we develop with the people we work with and what most of us really think about the jobs we spend most of our lives doing.

Following a 2011 critically acclaimed tour of the show, Prime Cut are taking to the road again with a brand new all star cast comprising Paddy Jenkins, Packy Lee, Marty Maguire and Walter McMonagle.

Both Packy and Walter have performed the roles of Randolph and Ding Ding in previous productions of ‘Shoot the Crow,’ and are excited to be bringing the characters back to life for a local audience. Tickets are £13
