3 Hail Mary’s
Written by Tommy Marren
Crokey Hill Players
Friday 25th & Saturday 26th October, 8pm
Set in an Irish nursing home in 2016, ‘3 Hail Mary’s' is a rip-roaring comedy with dozens of hilarious one-liners that will have you in tears of laughter.
The three Marys have lived together for over ten years but are now being moved to separate nursing homes.
Mary O’Toole is devoted to Our Lady of Knock. Mary O’Neill is a Londoner who met and subsequently married a Kerry man. Mary O’Brien is a retired nurse. The play is set around their last few hours together, as they laugh, cry, argue, sing, dance and recount their life experiences.
Without exception, this production has received standing ovations from audiences who are captivated by the characters and the story.
The script is sensitive and compassionate to the subject of memory loss, and with dementia so prevalent in Ireland this is a play that is as much thought-provoking as it is funny.
Tickets: €25 / €22. Early booking advised
