Sive

Sive

November 2-November 25, 2018

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 as “blasphemous” and “pornographic,” Sive, keenly revealing the status of women in Irish society circa 1950, has become a national treasure with its lyrical language and chillingly dark Hibernian humor.

Running Time: Approximately 2 hours 45 minutes, including one 10-minute intermission.

Directed by ICTC Artistic Director Vincent O’Neill
