Our first review of C.L.G./Sitting Up for Michael is in! Remote Goat has given our production 4 stars, and particularly commended the performances of Sharron Byrne as Frieda and Peter Dineen as Billy.

Sharron Byrne in her lauded performance as Frieda.
They particularly enjoyed the frantic pace and "very funny" writing in C.L.G., which has never been viewed by an audience before.

C.L.G./Sitting Up For Michael 2014 - Interview with the cast and crew (video)

The cast and crew of C.L.G./Sitting Up for Michael discuss the upcoming double bill.

C.L.G. 
Two members of rival GAA clubs have been locked in a room until they can decide on a neutral venue for their upcoming match. It'll be the first time the two teams will have met for nine years, and some old scores have been long to heal. Will the dastardly Sam trick his way to getting the venue he wants, or can the put-upon Lory hold fast? They'd need to hurry up though - Fair City will be on soon.

Sitting Up for Michael
Michael's died. Who's going to do the readings? Will there be a lock-in at Packie's? Why did he only get twenty Mass Cards? It's a wil' handlin' altogether. The family and friends of Michael Montague gather for the sit up on the eve of his funeral. Set in contemporary county Tyrone, James McAnespy's comedy explores themes of family, separation and hidden pasts. So don't open the brandy until tomorrow. Brian, Michael's stubborn son, bickers relentlessly with his sister Frieda who has just come down from Belfast and starts ruling the roost as usual. Their neighbour Doris offers her support and a hot pot of tea. Young Rory, who reaches for a drink a little too readily is there to see Joe, whose coming down on the University bus, with a girl he just met - but she's got more to hide than she's letting on.
