"Are you a witch or are you a fairy or are you the wife of Michael Cleary?"
This one woman show performed by Eve O’Mahony describes the events which led to the death of Brigid Cleary at the hands of her husband in Tipperary in 1895. The character of Brigid is the main narrator throughout the performance but her story is also told by a host of other characters. She tells the bittersweet story of her life as a successful business woman living in a patriarchal society and the details which lead to her tragic death. This moving play brings forth a whole slew of issues - issues of inequality, tradition and superstition, progression and ignorance, group mentality and individual steadfastness, independence and interdependence and the role of women in early 20th century rural Irish society.
