Tydavnet Drama Troupe will tread the boards in The Iontas Castleblayney theatre on Saturday 1st of April 2023 for their final staging of “Sive”. The play makes for beautiful theatre – from the start when matchmaker Thomasheen Sean Rua suggests to Mena that they marry the orphaned niece to a rich old farmer, to her final death, and each of the characters are crucial to the plot set in 1950s Ireland. As the matchmaker matter-of-factly states, there is no place for love in such hardscrabble lives. Over 3 very successful nights in Tydavnet and two in the Garage Theatre, the production showed a compelling story of poverty, desperation, and tragedy; this is your last opportunity to see this excellent presentation. Tickets must be prebooked on the theatre website; don’t miss it!
