  • Title: Holy Mary
  • Venue: Visual
  • Start Date/Time: 15/11/2018, 20:00
  • Details: Holy Mary is the story of two nine year old girls on the days leading up to the social occasion of the year: Their First Holy Communion. Mary and Majella have been mortal enemies since baby infants, and things have gotten even worse since Mary’s daddy moved in with Majella’s mammy. Both girls are searching for a way to insult the other, and Majella thinks she has found a weak spot when she realises that Mary’s Communion dress is actually a second hand dress that she herself donated to the Vincent dePaul. Will Majella use this devastating information to publicly take down her nemesis with a vicious rhyme? Or will she realise that maybe she and Mary are not so different and that maybe they could be allies instead of enemies? In typical Colfer fashion the characters are very real and very funny. The cast of two play two mothers, a benevolent priest, a patient teacher, a misguided father and two cheeky and lovable nine year olds. Holy Mary, a hilarious and heartbreaking tale of Communion, confusion and consternation. Tickets: €18/16
