  • The Unmanageable Sisters

Theatre, Stage & Film

The Unmanageable Sisters is an adaptation of Les Belles-Sœurs, a much-fêted Quebecois comedy from 1965 by French-Canadian playwright Michel Tremblay. Deirdre Kinahan has relocated Tremblay’s story, setting the action in Ballymun in 1973.

The story is that of Ger Lawless, who has won a million Green Shield Stamps from the supermarket, and has invited 15 of her friends around to help her stick all the stamps into their booklets. As they stick, the women discuss the men in their lives, the church, and their small joys. And they also all rob her stamps.

Tremblay’s play was a revelation in the 1960s for its depiction of working class life, and Kinahan’s update, The Unmanageable Sisters, will provide you with just the same thrills and insights in this startling Irish remake.
