Nuns, Paranoia and Illegal Booze at Town Hall Theatre…

Nuns, paranoia and illegal booze - KATS revive Drinking Habits for an April run at the Town Hall Theatre! Find out more here...

By popular demand, KATS, the award-winning local theatre company, is reviving its brilliant production of Tom Smith’s laugh-out-loud comedy, Drinking Habits. Featuring nuns, illegal booze, and plenty of secrets, Drinking Habits will be performed by the Knocknacarra Amateur Theatre Society - which has brought fun and frolics to Galway stages for more than 25 years - at the Town Hall Theatre from Tuesday April 9 to Friday April 12. The shows will run at 8pm, with one show being a fundraiser for Croí - The West of Ireland Cardiac Foundation!


Two nuns at the Sisters of Perpetual Sewing have been secretly making wine to keep the convent's doors open. However, Paul and Sally, reporters and former fiancées, have gotten wind of the racket and investigate by going undercover as a nun and a priest. Their presence, combined with the addition of a new nun, spurs paranoia throughout the convent that spies have been sent from Rome to shut them down. Wine and secrets are inevitably spilled as everyone tries to preserve the convent and reconnect with lost loves.

KATS staged Drinking Habits to great acclaim last year and is reviving the production for one last time at the Town Hall Theatre. This will be Galway’s last chance to see this wonderful farce, full of accusation, mistaken identities and romances run wild. Don’t delay, get your tickets now by tapping right HERE.

Drinking Habits is produced by Linsey Cant. The stage manager is Mairead Lydon. The cast is Dave Langan (Paul), Roisin NicAodhgain (Sally), Joan Gildea (Sister Augusta), Michelle Lyons (Sister Philomena), Marsha Maly (Sister Mary Catherine), Geraldine Holmes (Mother Superior), Damian O’Keefe (Father Chenille), and Sean Steede (George).

KATS perform Drinking Habits at the Town Hall Theatre from April 9-12. The show on April 10 is a fundraiser for Croí, with the proceeds from the night going to the Heart and Stroke charity. Tickets are €22/20 from the Town Hall Theatre. Call 091 - 569777 or visit to get yours.
