  • Synopsis

    This is an adaptation of John B Keane's book about the matchmaker Dan Pheaidí Aindí and his exploits. Dan also ran a dance hall which the clery were constantly trying to close down. It is said that Dan Pheaidí Aindí made a match for four hundred couples and that only one of them was unhappy. Although a humourous play it is tinged with sadness because TB was rampant in the country at that time.
