Set in a rural part of County Kerry, Sive tells the story of a young eighteen-year-old orphan girl, Sive, who lives with her Uncle Mike and his wife Mena. A Local Matchmaker puts together a plan to marry Sive to a local old but rich Farmer for the sum of two hundred pounds. Sive is distraught but is forced to do the will of her uncle and his bitter wife. Faced with an unthinkable future she takes the only choice left to her. Set against the harsh poverty and difficult times of 1950’s Ireland, Sive caused considerable controversy when it was first performed in Listowel in February 1959. Author John B Keane chose the name “Sive“, in honour of his sister Sheila using the Irish Gaelic form of her name. Clann Machua are delighted to present their own twist of this iconic play and Director Seamus Corry has put together a nice mix of experience and youth in his cast to present this John B Keane classic which celebrated its 60th birthday in 2019.
