Me, Mollser is the story of a strong-willed, passionate young Dubliner coping with consumption during the 1913 Lockout and Easter Rising of 1916.
You may recognize her from Sean O’Casey’s famous Irish play The Plough and the Stars, which was first performed at the Abbey Theatre in 1926.
Curious and enthusiastic, Mollser guides you through the overcrowded Dublin tenement where she lives. Her keen eye offers a view of daily life in turn of the century Dublin.
But today is not a normal day. She must discover how she got transported to this strange hall. Be part of the story and help her find her way back home.
Me, Mollser is part of the Abbey Theatre’s Priming the Canon project. This series of specially commissioned, interactive monologues aims to introduce the classics of Irish theatre to a younger audience. Me, Mollser is supported through curriculum linked online resources and in-school performances and workshops.
