Fans of Hitchcock’s “The Trouble With Harry” or “Waking Ned Divine” can take heart in Marie Jones’ “Fly Me To The Moon.”
Loretta Mackie (Tara Lynne O’Neill) and Francis Shields (Katie Tumelty) are community care workers, which translates roughly as nurses’ aides, for Davy Magee, a lonely bloke who loves Sinatra tunes and needs round the clock assistance.

“Fly Me To The Moon” mines the thin terrain of this not entirely original premise. Katie Tumelty and Tara Lynne O’Neill exhibit well seasoned comic timing. Tara Lynne O’Neill’s Loretta lets greed and need get the better of her good-nature.
