2015 - The Chastitute by John B. Keane
Rural Ireland in the late seventies, a time where society is changing rapidly. John Bosco McLaine, a bachelor farmer, who hasn't the makings of a dacent sin in him, is searching for a plain decent woman to share his life. "He nearly got there a thousand times but nearly never bulled a cow". Filled with humor, this play takes us hilariously through the various 'trials and tribulations' the Chastitute has to endure, meeting no less than 14 different characters in his pursuit to find a woman. From hilarious to tragic, audiences will relish the obvious comedy, yet, be moved by the unbearable solitude of a life without love and companionship. A Chastitute is a person without holy orders who has never lain down with a woman... rustic celibate by force of circumstance.
