A drama based on the Sean O'Casey play 'The Plough and the Stars' is being made available free of charge for 5th and 6th class primary school students from the Abbey theatre.
The play, 'Me, Mollser' has been produced in English, Irish and Irish Sign Language.
'Me, Mollser' by Ali Joy White and Mise, Mollser (translated by Caitríona Ní Mhurchú) are both directed by Sarah Fitzgibbon, and explore the character of Mollser from Sean O'Casey’s 'The Plough and the Stars'.

The Mollser Parcel, a blended learning pack with resources and lesson plans that cover topics and issues raised in the film that link it to the History, English, Drama and SPHE curricula.
