Tuar Ard Arts Centre Moate is proud to host ‘The Six Marys’ on Thursday next, October 11. This one woman comedy show written and performed by Athlone native, Jean Farrell tells the story of six girls born in 1950s Ireland and christened Mary.
Presented through diary excerpts and interspersed with songs and soundtracks from the eras, the play depicts the social history of the time - the stork, the comics and the catechism; the nuns, the processions and the gym slips, the hops, the hopes and the ‘big day’, the babies, the teenagers and the reality.
This nostalgic and sometimes bittersweet journey of self-discovery is laced with all kinds of sharp and comical observations and one-liners guaranteed to have you in stitches.
Curtain up for this must see production is 8pm with tickets priced at €15.
