Monday 5th March - 8pm - 4th Night

The Carnegie Players return with 'Semi - Private' by Mary Halpin


Semi-Private was Mary Halpin's first play and it won the 1982 Irish Times/Dublin Theatre Festival award for a play by a woman writer. Her other work for television includes 'Fair City' and “Harbour Hotel” for Radio.

Semi-Private is set in a gynaecological ward of a Dublin hospital. The four patients, a nun, a hard-nosed feminist, a nouveau riche housewife and an outspoken working-class shop girl, all have medical problems that are somewhat a reflection of their individual lifestyles, and may hide deeper psychological problems. In such close proximity to each other, the four women are forced to deal with each other's differences.
