The Year of the Hiker - 57th Wexford Drama Festival Performed by Camross Drama Group

7 March 2020

Wexford Drama Festival celebrates its 57th year of amateur drama and this year will be held in the Jerome Hynes Theatre in the National Opera House for the first time. As one of the longest running festivals in the country, we have entertained Wexford audiences for 5 decades and are delighted to be moving to our new home in the National Opera House.

Bringing the best of amateur drama from around the county we have 8 nights of entertainment, drama and comedy on offer. From classics such as Juno and the Paycock to two plays making their debut on the amateur circuit, there's certain to be something to suit every taste throughout the festival.

Local group, Camross Drama Group presents the classic John B Keane play The Year of the Hiker which has entertained audiences for decades and still, its popularity ensues. The Hiker Lacey, who has left the family home to take to the roads some years back, returns on a special day in the life of the family he abandoned.
