GARTER Lane Arts Centre and Theatre Studies at WIT are organising a bus to the Abbey Theatre on Saturday, September 23 to see ‘Katie Roche’, the third play by legendary Waterford Playwright, Theresa Deevy.

Once regarded as the playwright who would succeed Sean O'Casey as the next shining light of the Abbey Theatre, Deevy emerged with gusto in the early 1930s, only to fall into obscurity just a decade later. With an extraordinary body of over 25 plays, it is timely that the Abbey is currently reviving her best-known work, Katie Roche from August 28 until September 23.

Katie Roche is a great woman. She is destined for big things and is determined to overcome any obstacle she meets. After marrying a respected man, Katie believes her ambitions will be realised.

However, her journey will not be a smooth one and Katie must confront those who prevent her from being an influential and expressive person. Will her determined spirit save her? Or has her fate already been decided?

Directed by Caroline Byrne, this fresh and invigorating production is your chance to rediscover our very own Teresa Deevy's timeless play. Booking will close on Wednesday, September 20 so make sure to act fast if you don’t want to miss out.

The bus leaves at 9.45am on Saturday, September 23 from the Tourism & Leisure Building, WIT Cork Road Campus, Paddy Brown's Road. The day will include Lunch (included in full price ticket ONLY): at the Abbey Theatre, the show at 2pm (90 minutes, no interval) with the bus returning to Waterford from the Abbey Theatre at 3:45pm (arriving Waterford 6pm approx). Full price ticket: is €40 (Bus, Lunch & Show) while the cost of Bus and Show only is €25, tickets available 051-855038 or http://www.garterlane.ie

In fact things were so bad for so long at one period that there was no other way but up. Things are getting better but the questions have to be how much better and for whom?
