Fourth Wall Laois Theatre Group’s production of SIVE brings a contemporary credibility to J B Keane’s timeless tale of young love, materialism, family life, and women’s place in the world. Though set in the sixties, this carefully casted drama demonstrates that these enduring themes and contrasting emotions are as relevant today. Direction by David Corri is faithful to the tragic-comedy elements of the play and employs the rural background of the talented actors to fashion an authentic and memorable production.
Geraldine Moore’s Mena signature portrayal of a competent and successful woman who has brought a “fortune” and some business sense to the failing small hill farm is multi-dimensional. She motivates her “gomaral” of a husband but perceives his mother and niece to be impediments to their future happiness.
Joe Murphy as Mike Glavin, the husband, epitomises a conflicted man who “can’t be guided two roads at once”. His empathetic and nuanced performance dramatically outlines a steady decline in his mental health as the plot develops.
