By John B Keane

    Beautiful young Sive lives with her aunt and uncle in rural Kerry. Seán Dóta, an elderly farmer, offers the local match-maker Thomasheen Seán Rua, a large sum for her hand in marriage. Will this be too much for her aunt and uncle to resist?

    Don’t miss this chance to rediscover this dark, powerful story of greed and passion - one of the greatest Irish plays of the 20th Century.

    ‘a gripping production’ – The Sunday Times


    Light Opera Society of Tralee

    The National Award award-winning Light Opera Society of Tralee presents the ever popular Annie, a touching rags-to-riches tale of a feisty and very courageous 11 year old orphan adopted with some reluctance by the hard-nosed industrialist Oliver Warbucks.

    Annie’s refreshing charm, indomitable spirit, and winning ways force Warbucks to reappraise his life values and even influence government social policies in depression America.

    Directed by Aidan O’Carroll.
