Abbey Theatre Visits Presentation College Athenry!

As part of the Presentation College Athenry 1916 Centenary Commeoration programme, the Abbey Theatre visited their First Year students on Wednesday, 13th January with a special monologue performance of Me, Mollser by Ali White.

This compelling, funny and poignant play is based on the character of Mollser, a fifteen-year-old consumptive who appears in The Plough and the Stars by Sean O’Casey.

The play introduced the students to a strong willed and passionate young woman coping with consumption against the backdrop of the 1913 Lock-Out and the Easter Rising.
