About Us

 

 

Splódar is the resident drama company in the Glens Centre, Manorhamilton, Co. Leitrim. The company was established when the centre opened in 1995. Our principal objective is the production of high quailty drama in Irish and English. Under the name ‘The Glens Players’ (Aisteoirí na nGleannta) plays by writers such as Brian Friel, Frank McGuinness, Tom Murphy, Thornton Wilder, Jean Anouilh, John B Keane, Vincent Woods, Cathal O Searcaigh and Garrison Keillor have been staged by the company. The company was given the name Splódar in 2007 to emphasise the Irish policy of the group. Irish language productions to date include Damhsa ag Lughnasa, Sadhbh, Antigone, Salome, Stiofan Og,Ulysses, Ag Clai na Muice Duibhe and Leannáin (Buaiteoirí) as well as a re-working of Glantacháin Earraigh by Máirtín Ó Cadhain.
