Proudly presenting "BIG MAGGIE" by John B. Keane

The newly reformed Ballaghaderreen Players are delighted to be back in the rehearsal room with Big Maggie, one of the most popular plays by beloved Irish playwright, John B. Keane.

On the day of her husband’s funeral, Maggie Polpin widowed mother of four, is now ready to take power into her own hands… but at what cost? The dialogue crackles with hilarious, caustic putdowns as the indomitable Maggie deals with her feckless family and unwanted suitors. Everyone wants a part of Big Maggie and her property but she has other ideas.

With a local cast of eleven and direction by Julie Sharkey, Big Maggie had a hugely successful sell-out run at the Ballaghdream Arts Festival, and the group are excited to be bringing it to the Westport Theatre. It promises to be an unforgettable night at the theatre.
