Maggie Mhór

Event Description

Maggie Mhór is a translation of a play by John B. Keane, the story of a widowed mother-of-four living in rural Ireland. Owner of the Polpin family shop and farm and a drug dealer since the death of her husband, Maggie is an uncompromising woman who rejects the place which cultural precedent has laid out for her, a complex figure, far from the clichés of Irish femininity which preceded her.

Maggie Mhór

Event Description

Sa dráma seo, ar aistriúchán é ar shaothar John B. Keane, insítear scéal baintrí ar máthair ceathrar clainne í a bhfuil cónaí uirthi faoi tuath in Éirinn. Is í Maggie úinéir shiopa agus fheirm mhuintir Polpin agus is mangaire drugaí í ó cailleadh a fear céile. Is bean dhiongbháilte í a dhiúltaíonn don áit atá leagtha amach di ag an chultúr sheanbhunaithe agus is duine casta í atá i bhfad ó na clichés den bhanúlacht Éireannach a tháinig roimpi.
