Athlone Castle is delighted to host Athlone Little Theatre and their production of Lady Gregory’s classic comedy ‘Spreading the News’ for Culture Night.  Athlone Little Theatre will present two performances twice on this special occasion, at 4.30pm and 6.00pm.

The plot centres around the plight of the hapless Bartley Fallon who becomes the victim of fake news, spread by the hard-of-hearing Mrs. Tarpey and the gossip-hungry neighbours.

This one act play will be performed outdoors at a specially designated space on the Castle grounds. Public health guidelines will be strictly adhered to, and as such there will be limited capacity and pre-booking is essential. The performances will be subject to weather conditions.

Bookings are on a first come first serve basis, please register your interest by emailing [email protected].  There will be limited capacity in line with public health guidelines.
