Riverside Theatre Group returns to Ballina Arts Centre with yet another wonderful production. This time with one of John B Keane’s most popular plays, Big Maggie. This is a riveting story of money, land, and intrigue. On the day of her husband’s funeral, Maggie Polpin, widowed mother of four, is now ready to take power into her own hands… but at what cost?
Set in 1960s rural Ireland and shocking for its time – the play premiered in 1969 – Big Maggie is a compelling portrait of a woman who is determined to take control of her life following the death of her husband.
Big Maggie is also a prescribed single text on the English Leaving Certificate with many students around North Mayo studying the play for their 2017 exams. Tickets cost €12/€10. Early booking advised. For more information log on to [email protected] or call 096 73593.
