Lucan Dramatic Society was founded in 1957 by Rev. James Loughran and Michael Gannon as St. Mary’s Dramatic Society and began its life with a production of Lennox Robinson’s “The White-Headed Boy”.

Since those pioneering days, the group has gone through many changes. Over the years we have staged many well-known plays from the Irish Masters such as Sean O’Casey, Brendan Behan, Brian Friel, J.B. Keane, Hugh Leonard, Frank McGuinness and internationally renowned playwrights.
