Mend & Makedo Theatre Company presents Lucinda Sly written and directed by John MacKenna

Cast: Marian Brophy, Noel Burton-Lambe, Stephen Casey-Bracken, Fiona Kelly, Angela Keogh, John MacKenna, Sarah Maher, Tom McGrath.
In March 1835, ten thousand people crammed the streets of Carlow to see the public hanging of Lucinda Sly and John Dempsey. It was to be the last public hanging of a woman in the town. Sly and Dempsey had been convicted of the murder of Lucinda’s husband, Walter. Lucinda was a Protestant, John a Catholic; Lucinda was a landowner, John her labourer; Lucinda was 58 years old, John was less than half her age. They were lovers. John MacKenna’s new play is a tale of love, lust, land and murder – a passionate and powerful play intended only for over-16s.

Tickets €12/€10                      Friends 2 for 1
