An Inspector Calls

Speaking after attending a production of the J.B. Priestley  three-act drama  “An Inspector Calls “  staged by local community drama group Quadrangle Production in the McAllister Hall, Ballycastle Councillor Dónal Cunningham paid tribute to the group and their tremendous work.

“Quadrangle deserve great praise – they work tirelessly throughout the year with all age groups (8-21) through workshops in acting, singing and dance. They aim to make quality drama training accessible to all young people acros the Moyle area and to provide a sustainable platform for these young people to showcase their talents.  The professionalism of this production of J.B. Priestley’s play directed by Cross and Passion College pupil Lee McLaughlin is a credit to all those involved. There were so many fine performances, reminding us of the talent we have within our local community”
