The Other Abbey Players “Sive” @ The Crossroads,Cong 15,16 and 17th of November. Thursday to Saturday
Our local and much loved drama group The Other Abbey Players presents a major new production of John B. Keane’s most popular play, “Sive” at The Crossroads for 3 nights only, Thursday Friday and Saturday, November 15th-17th.
Nana and Mena bicker and provoke one another in the small smoky cottage where they live with Sive and Mena’s husband, Mike. While Nana dotes on her orphaned granddaughter, Sive, Mena plots to marry the young girl off to an old local farmer for the promise of land and a chance to escape from poverty.
Written in 1959, Sive has become an Irish classic and one of the nation’s best loved plays. It is a story about a battle of generations, a country in flux, exploitation, greed, love and tragedy all told with John B’s lyrical dialogue and great Irish humour.
The Players have been in serious rehearsal for months and we can all look forward to a great night of drama at The Crossroads in mid November.
