The Olympia Theatre, Wednesday 14th April - Monday 19th April
3 Hail Marys, by Tommy Marren – Rescheduled – A Unique Nursing Home Experience! Back by popular demand at The Olympia Theatre Dublin.
Set in an Irish nursing home in 2016, 3 Hail Marys is a must-see rip-roaring comedy that will have you in tears of laughter. Written by Tommy Marren, writer of the highly-acclaimed comedies, It's The Real McCoy and Nobody's Talking To Me, the play centres around three characters – namely Mary O'Toole, Mary O'Neill and Mary O'Brien. The three Marys have lived in this nursing home for over ten years and have become great friends. However, due to circumstances beyond their control, they are being moved to three separate nursing homes and the play is set around their last few hours together.
Mary O'Toole is a very religious character who has great devotion to Our Lady of Knock. Mary O'Neill is a Londoner who met, and subsequently married, a Kerry-man and moved to Ireland. Mary O'Brien is a retired nurse who has travelled to almost every corner of the world! With dozens of hilarious one-liners the play moves with pace throughout as the three Marys laugh, cry, argue, sing, dance and recount their life experiences. From statues to fishing rods, a would-be music composer, an enthusiastic and very posh ‘volunteer' and a very frustrated nursing home-owner, this play has everything! You can expect a number of twists throughout and the play finishes with all three Marys performing an original song written by Tommy Marren entitled I'm Really Still The Same, which is written from the perspective of a person who has dementia asking loved ones to treat them the same as they always did.
With dementia so prevalent in Ireland this is a play that is as much thought provoking as it is funny and the script has been meticulously crafted to ensure that it is sensitive and compassionate to the subject of memory loss. Without exception the productions has received standing ovations from audiences who are captivated by the characters and the story. 3 Hail Marys really is a play that both educates and entertains!
