Una Boylan joined Armagh Theatre Group soon after its foundation in 1966 and quickly became an essential part of the group right up to 2018. Her last performance on stage in 2016 was in 'Two's' and she was scheduled to take part in a comedy this Autumn, to be held in her beloved Abbey Lane Theatre.
Given her dynamic personality she held positions on committee from: Vice-Chair, Chair and President and while acting and producing plays, she raised the necessary funds to keep us afloat through decades of raffles.
Her enthusiasm was infectious and she never stopped recruiting to the ranks at every opportunity. Dozens of young and not so young actors got their 'break' on stage due to her cajoling and encouragement.
Amagh Theatre Group will forever be indebted to her drive, enthusiasm and good humour in her efforts to bring live drama to the people of Armagh. During the time when violence and disturbances were daily occurrences she, along with others in Armagh Theatre Group provided a vital cross-community group for drama, resulting in the vibrant Drama and Arts community that continues to blossom in Armagh City today.
Apology for a sideways on David. He is now off his back and walking with a knee brace, plaster removed.
Hope this image is upright and of a pre-fall David.
Some of those who attended a wonderful celebration dinner dance at the Charlemont Arms Hotel. A night to remember among a year of nights to remember. Hopefully the success of 2016 will continue into 2017 and onwards for the next 50years.
Market Place Theatre Armagh 23-25 Jan 2014 'LOOT' by Joe Orton
Described as a "tour de force of bad taste” and widely considered both “amoral and bizarre”, this masterpiece of black farce follows the fortunes of two young lads, Dennis and Hal, who hijack Hal's mother's coffin to stash the loot from a recent heist.
