The Six Marys

This one-woman-show is a comical yet poignant look at life, from childhood in the 1950s, to the present day. It draws very much on the influence of religion as taught by the nuns - preparing young Irish Catholic schoolgirls to imitate the virtues of the Virgin Mary.

They were to be meek, humble and pure. How well did this help them cope with the huge social changes of the following decades? Were the fanciful dreams of youth fulfilled? This journey of self-discovery is interspersed with well-known hit songs from the various eras, sung by Catherine Gallagher.

The six Marys are fun-loving girlfriends, who grow into practical, everyday housewives.The light-hearted atmosphere helps us concentrate on their journeys through the decades delivering all kinds of sharp and comical observations. Jean Farrell has plenty to say about the teenage pursuit of Mr Wonderful followed by the reality of married life, teenage children and growing waistlines.
