Sive

Directed by ICTC Artistic Director Vincent O'Neill

Sive is an intimate and unflinching view of Irish country folk living in abject poverty and hopelessness in rural County Kerry. Young, beautiful Sive, barely more than a child, is promised in marriage to an old but wealthy farmer by her desperate relatives in return for the sum of 200 pounds. Famously rejected by the Abbey Theatre, and viewed by some as "blasphemous" and "pornographic" at the time, Sive, keenly revealing the status of women in Irish society circa 1950, has become a national treasure with its lyrical language and chillingly dark Hiberian humor.

Starring Josephine Hogan, Patrick Moltane, Aleks Malejs, Peter Riamando and others; introducing Kiana Duggan-Haas as Sive.
