The Mai

by Marina Carr

Lime Tree Theatre | Wed 15th & Thur 16th April | 8pm | €20/€18

The Mai is an epic tale, both wildly funny and humorously tragic, of three generations of a family inspired by love but shattered by inescapable reality.

The Mai is a formidable forty-year-old woman and teacher, whose husband Robert, a musician, has always felt stifled by her ideals of perfection. The play opens in her home in the midlands, on the banks of the legendary Owl Lake, on the day of Robert’s return after an absence of four years.

A starry three generation ensemble is led by Maeve Fitzgerald as the Mai, Stella McCusker as Grandma Fraochlan, and her grandchildren – Rachel O’Byrne as Millie alongside Leslie Conroy as Connie.

The two family aunts are played by Marion O’Dwyer as Julie and Joan Sheehy as Agnes.

Director Andrew Flynn heads a sterling creative team which includes Ciaran Bagnall (Set & Lighting Design) Carl Kennedy (Composer/Sound Design) and Niamh Lunny (Costume Design) to bring this production to the stage.
