The 54th Wexford Drama Festival has been playing to big audiences at the Dun Mhuire Theatre in Wexford town since it opened last week.

The Deputy Mayor of the Wexford Borough District, Cllr. Tony Dempsey, was on hand for the opening performance and he warmly praised the organisers of the event and wished all the participants well.

The opening night drew a very large audience with the local Ballycogley Players staging the Billy Roche penned ‘Lay Me Down Softly’

Throughout the festival groups have will travelled from many parts of the country to stage their plays but the event will finish on Friday night with the local Wexford Drama Group’s performance of  ‘Portia Coughlan’ which should ensure another very big audience as the event reaches its conclusion.
