The Matchmaker by John B. Keane - Lime Tree Theatre

The Matchmaker by John B. Keane

Presented by CTD (City Theatre Dublin)

The Matchmaker follows the efforts of Dicky Mick Dicky O Connor, to make matches for the lonely and lovelorn the 1960’s.

Using his inimitable way with words and his one sense of “devilment” and wit, John B. Keane delves into the longings, hungers, fears and foibles of this collection of lonely country people creating a marvellously colourful world, taking us back to a simpler time, when phones were few and far between and the only web was one left behind by spiders.
