This new production of Moll will be directed by David Horan, produced by Donal Shiels, with executive producers Caroline Downey and Denis Desmond.
This production will star Frank Kelly (Father Jack in Father Ted) as His Lordship The Bishop, Des Keogh (The Love Hungry Farmer by John B. Keane, which played to packed houses in the Gaiety last year) as Very Rev Canon Pratt, Mary McEvoy (Glenroe) as Bridgie Andover, Clare Barrett (Fair City, I ♥ Alice ♥ I) as Moll, Damian Kearney as Father Brest C.C. and Pat McDonnell (Naked Camera, Father Ted, The Savage Eye) as Father Loran C.C.
MOLL, first produced in July 1971 in Killarney, is a comedy set in a rural presbytery in Kerry – the newly appointed Moll is a priest’s housekeeper who takes over a parish house with a “divide and conquer” strategy.
When Canon Pratt and his two curates, Father Brest and Father Loran, lose their esteemed Ms Bottomly, they must recruit a replacement to carry on with the cooking and cleaning.
They select Ms Maureen Kettle, (Moll). She wraps the Canon around her little finger, feeds him well while starving the curates and continues this pattern as the Canon is promoted and one of the curates takes his place. When it comes to the question of Moll’s pension, more chaos ensues – however with the support of the Bishop, Moll proves to be an unstoppable force.
