The All-Ireland One-Act Drama Festival has ended at Kilmuckridge, but there is little consolation for participating Wexford groups, although New Ross Drama Workshop will be happy with a runners-up prize in the confined section.
Coolgreany’s production of Mr Foot didn’t figure seriously in the Open Section that was won by the Moat Club Naas production of Jimmy Murphy’s acclaimed play What’s Left of the Flag.
Gunpowder Productions took the major honours in the Confined Section with Wittgenstein In The West by Stephen Toomy, with the New Ross production of Don Nigo’s Spectre in the runner-up spot.
1st. WHAT’S LEFT OF THE FLAG by Jimmy Murphy performed by Moat Club.
