  1. Sive

    Sive is a play by Irish playwright John B. Keane that depicts Irish rural life in the 1950s. The main character of the play is Sive, yet she rarely speaks in the play. This ultimately enhances the impact of the whole play on the audience. We get a clear sense of how she is being used: her voice is literally drained out by the power-hungry nature of the society in which she lives. The drama is a clear—a tragedy that never has any real sense of escapism amid the selfishness and greed. Money dominates almost every line of the play, which brings to light the moral—that innocent people suffer greatly in a society that is so self-absorbed and dominated by powerful authoritarian people.
