The Six Marys 13th - 14th Sep 2018
THE SIX MARYS has been greatly enjoyed by audiences all over Ireland. The play is a comical yet poignant look at life from childhood in the 1950s to the present day. It is written and narrated by Jean Farrell, with supporting actress/singer Catherine Gallagher. The play tells the story of six girls christened Mary. Excerpts from diaries are interspersed with songs and soundtracks from the different eras. The audience is brought on a journey depicting the social history of the time: the comics, the catechism and the stork; the nuns, the processions and the gym slips; the hops, the hopes and the ‘big day’; the babies, the teenagers and reality. This journey of self-discovery is laced with one-liners guaranteed to make you laugh!
