‘Isn’t it only bringing two people together in wedlock we are?’
One of the greatest Irish plays of the 20th Century, John B. Keane’s Sive stands tall in the Irish theatre canon.
This gripping new production by director Conall Morrison was enjoyed by over 30,000 people during a sell-out run at the Abbey Theatre. The globally renowned Abbey Theatre makes its debut to the Millennium Forum for its first visit to the City in over fifteen years.
Beautiful young Sive lives with her aunt and uncle in rural Kerry. Seán Dóta, an elderly farmer, offers the local matchmaker Thomasheen Seán Rua, a large sum for her hand in marriage. Will this be too much for her aunt and uncle to resist?
