    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.

  • FEMALE GOTHIC

    With Rebecca Vaughan

    In the unquiet darkness between life and death, a haunted woman tells strange tales of the macabre and terrifying; eerie stories that have gathered dust and been forgotten. Until now.

    In the thrilling tradition of M R James and Edgar Allan Poe, this literary spine-chiller celebrates three lost gothic works from the great Victorian female writers.  Adapted and performed by Rebecca Vaughan.

    *****  'A masterclass in storytelling. Chilling, haunting, dazzling. Female Gothic is a real delight. Brilliant, brilliant work.'
