Since it’s foundation in 1972 Coolmine Drama Circle has been entertaining audiences both young and old. Since then the group have presented no less than 65 productions locally, nationwide, and in the UK. From small beginnings in the library of Coolmine Community School the group has grown such that their latest production “A 1940’s Radio Christmas Carol” by Walton Jones was well received in both Dunboyne, Clonsilla, and The Venue theatre, Ratoath.
Coolmine Drama Circle return to Westport this year with with Dermot Bolgers “From These Green Heights”. This is a journey through the lives of two Dublin families. Spanning four decades, the action moves from the 1960s when Dessie first glimpses the landmark Ballymun Towers, to the night in 2004 when his young daughter packs up to leave the flat that has been their home. From These Green Heights is a hidden history of modern Dublin, exploring the relationship between a stigmatised suburb and the inhabitants who fought to reshape it and call it home.
