Sive - Moyne Variety Group which was founded in 1978 and branched into Drama in 1992 put on a super show with its interpretation of John B. Keane’s “Sive” which played to a packed to capacity Source Theatre, Thurles on January 18th and 19th. Audiences were treated to a wide range of emotions from the hilarity of the exchanges between “Mena” played by Geraldine Delaney and her mother-in-law “Nana Glavin” played by Maureen Claffey to the tragic demise of “Sive” which drew tears from many eyes. Congratulations to all nine members of the cast and their Director, Susan Troy on an excellent show which was really complemented by a wonderful set. Well done to all concerned.
