Want a lot, can’t have everything but I want everything

It's been a long time since I last shared my current #reading. I'm starting to read Sive, a screenplay of greed and bitterness of a scheming matchmaker and a resentful woman forcing a beautiful young girl to marry an old man. Sive was written by John B. Keane, a playwright and poet from Listowel in County #Kerry, one of Ireland's popular authors.
Sive caused controversy then as the story was set against the harsh poverty and difficult times of 1950s #Ireland. But the screenplay has since become an established part of the #Irish theatrical canon.
I had a pint at the John B. Keane family pub in Listowel and had a brief conversation with one of Keane's sons, Billy who charmed me with stories of his life growing up in the pub and of his father. Will share more about my visit to this pub in my blog soon 😉🍺
