What Would Ma Say
In this hilarious play based on the best-seller of the same name, Kathleen Doyle introduces us to her remarkable family and their exploits growing up in Dublin in the 1950s and 1960s. Kathleen describes Ma as an ordinary woman with very little education behind her. But maybe not so ordinary in the way she learned to survive and handle life.
She was the backbone, the one who kept them together as a family, just about keeping their heads above water. But through all the poverty, Kathleen and her brothers and sisters had a laugh turning their kitchen into a swimming pool on a hot summers day, or trying to hide a stolen pig in the bath. What Would Ma Say is a nostalgic and poignant reminder of a Dublin that’s long gone.
