A play set in the living room of the Foley farmhouse is the latest production at Portrush Summer Theatre.

The Two Loves of Gabriel Foley by Jimmy Keary tells the story of batchelor farmer, Gabriel Foley, who lives with his elderly mother where he faces the scorn of his Aunt Lucy who regularly visits.

He is unaware that his neighbor, Chrissie McCabe, fancies him and instead joins the local drama group to romance upmarket Hazel Myers.

With the help of wisecracking friend, Liam Gavigan, Gabriel sets out to win Hazel from the clutches of Clive Snell.

Ballymoney Literary & Debating Society will present the show at Portrush Town Hall from Wednesday, July 23 to Saturday, July 26 nightly at 8pm.

Ticket prices are: adults £7, Oaps, £6, children £4. Special rates for organised parties are also available.

The box office is open Wednesday to Saturday 11am to 12 noon and 6pm-8pm. Call 028 7082 9539.
