The Ballintemple Variety Troupe presents
Written and directed by Mary Keogh
”He’s a suave, hardworking, talented Priest, he’s popular with his parishioners, he’s looked up to by the Nuns”…
So what’s missing in Ted’s life… what’s holding him back.
Ted’s Promotion is a play about what really might have been going on in Ted’s head… and a tribute to FR. TED on the 20th Anniversary of Dermot Morgan’s death, Ted dreams about being famous. He’d love the opportunity to showcase his talents, maybe on TV. He’d like to be on better terms with Bishop Len Brennan, after all he’s the BOSS and that could open doors for him and he’d like to get one over on his arch rival, Fr. Dick Byrne, to wipe the smirk off his face, for good.
Fr. Jack’s drinking is totally out of control and Ted is at the end of his tether with him when suddenly it looks like his luck is about to change. Bishop Len arrives with his stunning young PA, Sr. Alana, to deliver some news, but when Fr. Doogal insults an already irate Bishop and Mrs. Doyle annoys him sending him into an awful rage things can only get worse… much worse.
