Granary Theatre

"Kitty in the Lane"

When Kitty's boyfriend isn't showing up to escort her out the lane to a local beauty pageant, we jump into her tragic, hilarious existence on a rural farm with her cantankerous father.

Kitty in the Lane tells the story of a twenty year old girl living in an isolated cottage in rural south west Ireland with her elderly father. In conjunction to caring for her father, Kitty is managing the family farm alone, due to her brother's recent death. The action takes place on the eve of a local beauty pageant with Kitty waiting for her boyfriend to escort her to this event for a night escaping her domestic duties. As Kitty waits for his arrival, we get a glimpse into her world, and her relationship with family, friends and community. The play is a dark drama, unlocking Kitty's perspective of life as a young woman in a lonesome environment, but is also filled with comedic relief through Kitty's witty observations and anecdotes of her own reckless activity in the past.
