“Moll” by John B. Keane is an hilarious comedy about life in an Irish country presbytery and gives an insight into who is truly running local affairs in a fictional parish.
This comedy opens in Canon Pratt’s parlour, when he and his two curates, Fr Brest and Fr Loran, are faced with the problem of replacing their housekeeper. As the comedy develops, many changes come to the parish and the parochial house. When the presbytery gets the new housekeeper, it is like “a country that gets a change of government”, or a family who gets a new stepmother.
Moll Kettle would work for no less than a Canon for, in her own words, ‘Tis hard to come back to the plain black and white when one is used to the purple’.
“Moll” is directed by Jim Morey with Moll played by Olwyn Dillon and a cast of six local talented actors.
