The NOLA Project says
What is the price of human decency?

In the spirit of early NOLA Project hit productions “The Cripple of Inishmaan” and “The Lieutenant of Inishmore”, “Sive” is a dark and powerful tale of greed and passion told with the wit and sharp tongue of Irish playwright John B. Keane. “Sive” tells the story of an orphaned girl of 17 sent to live with her deceased mother’s brother and his calculating wife. When a town matchmaker brings news of an offer for a great deal of money in exchange for young Sive’s hand in marriage to the 70-year-old Seán Dóta, the family must make a painful decision.

Even though the play has been renowned for decades in Ireland, it is a largely unfamiliar sight to American eyes as it has only been produced a handful of times in the U.S. since its 1959 publishing. Keane’s writing style in “Sive” recounts a young Martin McDonagh or Conor McPherson in its acerbic wit and unique Irish poetry.

Director Alex Ates* helms the production featuring some of the finest talent in the city. Led by NOLA acting icons John Grimsley, Ron Gural and Janet Shea, the cast includes A.J. Allegra*, James Bartelle*, Joel Derby, Alex Martinez Wallace*, Kristin Witterschein* and Yvette Bourgeois in the title role.
