National Opera House Event

Abbey Theatre presents Me, Sara

16 November 2017

Tickets: Children €6 | Teachers Free Admission

Jerome Hynes Theatre, 10:00 AM and 12:00 PM 

Written by Dylan Coburn Gray and Directed by Amy Conroy, Me, Sara is based on the character of Sara Tansey from Synge's Playboy of the Western World.

Sara Tansey's father is just back from overseas and is being very annoying! Just because he's bought her oranges doesn't mean he can say nothing happens in their town. He wasn't there when the murderer came. But was he really a murderer? Or a Playboy? Or both? And does the Playboy see just how clever and nice Sara is? Passionate, lyrical and angry, Sara invites us into a world where people are made by the stories they tell and parents need to be told who their children really are.

This is the third of the Abbey Theatre's Priming the Canon series which brings standalone plays based on the classics directly into schools. With pre and post show workshops and online curriculum based materials Me, Sara is suitable for 5th and 6th class students and children 10+years.
