Leaving Cert play The Trial to be performed by Borrisoleigh Drama Group

This May Bank Holiday Weekend Borrisoleigh Drama Group present their latest production, The Trial on 28th, 29th April and 1st May. The play was originally written in Irish as An Triail, by the Irish playwright Máiréad Ní Ghráda and is part of the Irish language curriculum for the Leaving certificate. The play is set in Ireland during the 1960s and deals with the pregnancy, and subsequent single motherhood, of a young woman (played by Antoinette McMahon) who is shunned by her family, spends time in a mother and baby home and in some unsavoury accommodation in Dublin. The Trial goes back and forth between “flashbacks” and the trial.
