“Daughters of Emer – The Story of Lily and Lolly Yeats” written by John Carty, performed by Nicola MacEvilly and Margaret Kilcoyne. The lives and work of Susan and Elizabeth Yeats (Lily and Lolly) will also be uniquely celebrated during the festival, with a warm and humorous new dramatisation of their lives written by Sligo Actor and Director John Carty. The dramatisation was commissioned by the Lily and Lolly Festival with the support of Yeats 2015. The dramatisation draws us into the challenging and creative lives of the two sisters, with an occasional wry insight and commentary on the antics of their brothers William and Jack.
Performance in the Model Theatre, Sunday June 14th at 2pm
Lissadell Community Centre, Saturday June 20 at 5pm.
