This weekend, Moville Drama Group will begin a week long run of the multi award winning play, "Sive" by John B Keane.
Set against the harsh poverty and difficult times of 1950`s Ireland. "Sive" caused considerable controversy on its debut and even to this day gives rise to considerable debate.
"Sive" is a story of greed and bitterness concerning a scheming matchmaker and a resentful woman forcing a beautiful young girl to marry an old man.
In this production, the title role of Sive is played by Cassie Lafferty, while Mary Bradley Dougall plays her aunt and Seamus Mc Granaghan plays her uncle.
William Gillespie takes on the role of her sweetheart and Michael Bonner plays the suitor for her hand in marriage. Her grandmother is played by Maura Harkin. Paul Bredin and Maurice Mc Geady have roles as two travellers.
The play is produced and directed by Eamon McLaughlin, who also plays the part of the matchmaker.
The action of the play takes place in the kitchen of a small farmhouse in a remote mountains part of Ireland.
Opening night is Saturday, March 9 at 8pm and, with the exception of Monday, March 11, it will continue until its final performance on Friday, March 15.
No tickets are required, you just pay at the door and there would be no better way to spend an evening in the lead up to St Patrick's Day than by going to see a drama considered by everyone as a classic of Irish theatre.
Its appeal has endured for countless years and considering the play has recently been on the Leaving Certificate English syllabus should ensure that it has a great rapport with audiences of all ages.
