Sive by PICT Classic Theatre

Pittsburgh in the Round: The cut-away of an Irish cottage that serves as a set for PICT’s production of John B. Keane’s Sive (pronounced sigh-ve), looks a quaint place, if sparse and threadbare, but it will house a destructive tableau of hungry, grasping poverty. What befalls because of it prompts Nanna Glavin’s (Sharon Brady) bitter comment, “Women must pay for all happiness.” And it certainly is the women who must suffer the most for even the few scraps of comfort left to them.
