Big Maggie by John B. Keane

The play opens with the burial of Maggie Polpin's husband Walter as she sits on a tombstone while the Rosary is recited. It becomes apparent that Maggie didn't have an easy life with her husband due to his fondness for whiskey and his womanising, some believed that Maggie and Walter were never a suitable match. As her two daughters and two sons join her after the burial Maggie soon lets them know some of her intentions, she has a shop and farm to run and intends wasting no time, there are changes coming for all her family although they wont all be happy with her plans. There are a few twists and turns involving the handsome salesman Teddy Healion, the Madden family and more.

Fourth Wall Theatre group is Co. Laois's new theatre group consisting of new and experienced talent. The play stars Margaret McKenna, one of Carlow Little Theatre's finest actors having recently appeared in Calendar Girls. The play also stars and is directed by Kevin Lalor-Fitzpatrick and Michelle O'Sullivan.
