John B. Keane’s Sive


By Jeanne Sutton
01st Feb 2014
John B. Keane’s Sive

The Abbey in recent years has been home to plenty of strong parts for female actors, with Pygmalion and Alice in Funderland springing immediately to mind. This February sees?Sive taking to the stage. One of John B. Keane’s most scathing attacks on the greed of Irish society, Sive depicts the life of a young and beautiful woman being effectively sold into marriage to an older and haggard man by her guardians while the man she loves and wants is deemed unsuitable. A haunting fable about the ugliness of choosing money over mercy and exploiting the powerless, we’re hugely anticipating this one. Taking on the role of Sive is R?is?n O?Neill, who will be making her Abbey debut in the production.
