Queens of the Island Field is the result of a partnership between Limerick Youth Service, St. Mary’s Women’s Group, Moyross Community Drama Group and The Gaff.
‘Queens of the Island Field is a strong representation of life over a number of generations in St. Mary’s Parish,’ said LYS’s Gillian Boland adding ‘audiences will be charmed and entertained as both texts are peppered with plenty of comedy!’
The play includes teenage girls from Limerick Youth Service’s youth groups in the King’s Island area who are affectionately known as ‘D’island Girls.’
‘They have had a very busy few months rehearsing for the play and should be extremely proud of their work and contribution,’ said Gillian.
