‘Nobody’s Talking To Me’ is set in rural Ireland in the early 1970’s and is best described as a ‘full blown’ Irish rural comedy and the follow-up to the hugely successful ‘It’s the Real McCoy’.
The celebration of a 50th wedding anniversary should be a happy occasion but not for Mattie and Maggie Conway! The ‘happy couple’ haven’t spoken a single word to each other for 10 years but the only people in on the secret are the couples only daughter Josephine and Mattie’s sister Minnie who both happen to live in the same house as the estranged couple!
However, disaster strikes when the local parish priest Fr. O’Toole checks the parish records and decides to surprise Mattie and Maggie on the morning of their anniversary to renew their marriage vows. Needless to say all hell breaks loose and audiences are in for a roller-coaster of hilarious scenes as the reason for the ‘silence’ unfolds piece by piece.
With sub-plots that include a wake in the house next door, an over-used handkerchief, a tricky crossword, a pair of over-worked knitting needles, a well-oiled whiskey bottle, a very confused kettle and the arrival of an old flame its one laugh after another as the one-liners just flow and flow!
Stand by for another rip-roaring two-hour show that will have you in tears of laughter all night long.
Can the renewal of the wedding vows reunite Mattie and Maggie Conway or will the silence continue?
