Pension Plan

Beezneez Theatre Company

When Beezneez Theatre Company premiered John McDwyer’s new play, The Pension Plan, last year, it sold out all fifteen venues on its national tour so it is hardly surprising that the company responded to demand and decided to tour the play again this year.

The company is delighted to be able to return to Backstage Theatre, longford where The Pension Plan will play on Thursday July 11th . The revival tour is selling out nationwide and early booking is essential.

Coming from the pen of the writer of such popular plays as Lovely Leitrim, Callaghan’s Place, Unforgiven, An Ordinary Man and Turning Mammy, The Pension Plan is a rip roaring , laugh a minute comedy about two bachelor brothers, Eugene (Pat Feely) and Sneachta (Gerry Farrell), who live a contented life on their hillside farm, disturbed only by the efforts of their spinster neighbour, Ann Catherine (Valerie Traynor) to marry either or both of them.

A visit from a stranger, Mr. Dolan, (Barry Deignan) causes consternation and threatens to turn their tranquil existence upside down. Is there a way out, who will provide it and at what price?

The Pension Plan has delighted audiences all over Ireland and is certainly a show that should not be missed by Longford audiences.
