Abbey Theatre Players visit

4th, 5th & 6th Class were invited to watch "Me Mollser" based on the character Mollser-a fifteen year old who appears in "The Plogh and the Stars" by Sean O'Casey. The play is set against the backdrop of the 1913 lockout and the 1916 Easter Rising. Mollser lives in an overcrowded tenement in Dublin. She has a disease called Tuberculosis (TB) also known as consumption. Through the eyes of Mollser, we recieved an insight into life in Ireland when Mollser was growing up.

After the show, we had a Q&A session with the actor. We then went back to the classroom where we created character profiles from that period of histoy.

We really enjoyed the play and we would give it a 10/10!
