BEEZIE

Performed by Sheila Flitton


Beezie Gallagher was, for sixty years, the sole resident of an island on Lough Gill, Co. Sligo. Born in the 1870s and orphaned in her teens, Beezie's wisdom, robust humour and fierce independence gained her a reputation as a healer, wise woman and witch.

In Sheila Flitton’s renowned solo play, Beezie returns telling of her youth, her friendship with the young W.B. Yeats (he wrote of her in his poem ‘The Lonely One’ ), and her brief marriage in middle life.

She relives the crisis of her old age, when the Great Freeze of 1947 left her marooned and starving. The joy of her rescue turns to tragedy as she is consigned to the County Home. There, authority in the shape of a flinty Reverend Mother attempts to relieve her of her pension book and her cherished freedom. Beezie’s campaign of resistance is moving and hilarious, her escape by night a triumph of ingenuity and resilience.


What the papers say:
Evening Press – ‘Magnificent evocation of Beezie.’

The Stage – ‘Skillfully Constructed, Atmospheric and altogether appealing.’

Evening Herald – ‘Marvellously effective.’ ‘Perfect.’

Irish Times – ‘Go bask in it.’
