Mothers, a one woman show

Mothers, was a one woman show devised and performed by veteran Abbey Actress May Cluskey. It featured extracts from Yeats, O’Casey and Kavanagh. This poster for the show features a photo taken by Fergus Bourke who photographed Abbey Theatre productions from 1973 to 1991. He was well-known for his images of the West. This poster resonates with major themes in Irish theatre; rural life and the relationship between a mother and her children.
