Director Rae McKen said: “I believe that the free season of theatre at The Scoop provides an opportunity for audiences from all backgrounds (young and old, seasoned theatregoers and first timers, and those for whom the cost of theatre is prohibitive) to see excellent shows in a
wonderful, communal setting. This year I am so happy to have the opportunity to direct a wonderful, talented cast, as diverse as our audiences in one of Shakespeare’s best loved comedies as well as the tale of Grainne O’Mhaille.”
