JB Keane’s Successful TD back by popular demand

Tuesday, 27th June, 2017 5:33pm

The Successful TD returns to Galway for one night after its sell out shows earlier this year.

Starring Jon Kenny and Mary McEvoy, The Successful TD follows the trials, tribulations, misadventures and hilarious antics of Tull McAdoo as he seeks re-election to the Dáil in the "October Elections”.

Written in 1967, John B Keane displays his edge for humour and satire that are uncomfortably close to the politics of today… peppered with Keane's gallery of madcap characters this show will have you laughing at politics (in a good way) from the start.

Tull has roped in the help of his faithful daughter Kate while his wife nurses her various ailments in bed or Lisdoonvarna, but his arch enemy Flannery the local school teacher plans to scupper the election for Tull.

“Any man with a vote is a man to be respected. I’ll play with them, lie to them, sing dumb about them while I have a chance of a vote. That’s my livelihood. Don’t give me no more stink about the truth. Christ told the truth and they crucified Him…”

Directed by Michael Scott, the show is based on The Letters of A Successful TD and An Irish Minister of State, both written by John B Keane. It was adapted for the stage by Jon Kenny, Mary McEvoy and Michael Scott.

The show comes to the Town Hall Theatre in Galway on Saturday 1 July at 8pm. Tickets for this are selling fast.

Tickets are €20 / €18 and are available on or by calling 091-569777.

'One of your own - a vote for Tull is a vote for yourself!’
