Being sold to an old, decrepit man for two hundred pounds is not every girl’s idea of a fairytale marriage, but for Sive, it’s the only way her family can find some relief from their poverty-stricken existence. Sive tells the folk culture story of star-crossed lovers, set against the backdrop of the 50’s in County Kerry, where the charming thatch-roofed cottages illustrate both the simplicity and the difficulty of everyday life. Similar to PICT’s 2015 critically acclaimed Sharon’s Grave, Sive embodies all the Irish wit and charm that defines John B. Keane’s plays. Appropriate for all ages.
