Mary O’Neill

Committee Member

I joined GDS in 1958 as an acting member, appearing in plays at our own little theatre behind the George Hotel(both now demolished). I married in 1960 and started my family continuing my theatre work in the early 1970s. I appeared in many productions and also began directing plays which became my great passion. I have directed many plays which became my great passion. I have directed many well-known plays e.g. Allo, Allo, Pink Panther, Vicar of Dibley, Stepping Out, myy very favourite Calendar Girls and many more. I have also served on the committee for many years serving one term as chairman (or person whichever is pc). At GDS, we pride ourselves on being as professional as humanly possible, a wonderful, friendly society to be part of.
