Decadent Theatre company are proud to present Marina Carr’s The Mai on the stage of the Gaiety Theatre this March. This production will run for one week only from the 24- 28 March. Tickets go on sale this Friday from Ticketmaster and the Gaiety Theatre.
This an epic tale, both wildly funny and humorously tragic, of three generations of a family inspired by love but shattered by inescapable reality. The Mai is a formidable forty-year-old woman and teacher, whose husband Robert, a musician, has always felt stifled by her ideals of perfection. The play opens in her home in the midlands, on the banks of the legendary Owl Lake, on the day of Robert’s return after an absence of four years.
A starry three generation ensemble is led by Maeve Fitzgerald as the Mai, Stella McCusker as Grandma Fraochlan, and her grandchildren, Rachel O’Byrne as Millie alongside Leslie Conroy as Connie. The two family aunts are played by Marion O’Dwyer as Julie and Joan Sheehy as Agnes.
Director Andrew Flynn leads a sterling creative team which includes Ciaran Bagnall Set & Lighting Designer Carl Kennedy Composer/Sound Designer, and Niamh Lunny as Costume Designer to bring this production to the stage.
