The keening (1)

On 6th September I performed in a play called ‘The Keening’, written and directed by Kyle Anderson and Cristin McAuley. We performed in Belvoir Players Studio, and it was produced by Deviant Theatre Productions. The play was set in medieval Ireland, and was about the development of the Banshee; how she came to be the legend we know her as. I played a young girl called Cathleen who was seeking an escae from an arranged marriage. We had been rehearsing since the end of June, and although the process was challenging for me as I had never played a lead role on a public stage, we got brilliant reviews and are hoping to perform it again next year.
