Synopsis of Play

 

This Irish Melodrama is based on the tragic story of Ellen Hanley whose murdered body as washed ashore at Moneypoint in Co.Clare and buried nearby in Burrane cemetery. Boucicault’s play has a much happier ending and in the 1860’s The Colleen Bawn was an immediate success in London where it had the longest run in the history of the English Stage – its 230 performances making it “The Mousetrap” of it’s day
