Moll  theatre finished


By John B Keane

Parke Drama and Arts Group

Thursday 23rd March, 8pm

John B Keane’s Moll is a comedy set in a rural presbytery in Kerry where the newly appointed priest’s  housekeeper takes over a parish house with a “divide and conquer” strategy.

When Canon Pratt and his two curates, Father Brest and Father Loran, lose their esteemed Ms Bottomly, they must recruit a replacement to carry on with the cooking and cleaning. They select Ms Maureen Kettle, Moll. She wraps the Canon around her little finger, feeds him well while starving the curates and continues this pattern as the Canon is promoted and one of the curates takes his place. When it comes to the question of Moll’s pension, more chaos ensues – however with the support of the Bishop, Moll proves to be an unstoppable force.
