A long time ago - and a very long time it was - this country was in a state of economic paralysis.  Strikes were an everyday occurrence. The country was rapidly going down the tubes.  The mother-fixated, ex-auctioneer Taoiseach F.X  Ryan developed severe panic attacks and decamped from government buildings to the safety of his home under the care of his doting if demented mammy.    His minister for foreign affairs returns from New York with a plan to turn the entire west of  Ireland into one large cemetery to inter the dead of New York, London, and Paris,  the brainchild of a young Manhattan property developer called Donald Trump.  In the ensuing scramble, the corrupt politicians attempt to double-cross one another, leaving Taoiseach Ryan on top of the greasy pole, with the scheme a huge success.


The play is freely adapted from  Brian Friel’s 1969 satire THE MUNDY SCHEME, itself mildly prophetic of the Celtic Tiger years.


THE TRUMP SCHEME  will be at Sneem Community Centre
