The original “40 year old virgin” is a John B. Kean play “The Chastitute” which returns for its first production in 15 years at The Gaiety Theatre from the 25th April – 20th May 2017.
John Bosco McLaine, who hasn’t the makings of a decent sin in him, is a bachelor farmer searching for a plain decent woman to share his life. He nearly got there a thousand times - but nearly never bulled a cow!
A chastitute by the way – is a person without holy orders who has never lain down with a woman… a rustic celibate by force of circumstance.
The play is full of Kean’s carefully observed country humour and pathos. The stellar cast includes Stephen Brennan as John Bosco McLaine and Catherine Byrne, Sorcha Furlong and Aisling O’Neill all cast of RTE’s Fair City.
The Gaiety is just a 4 minute walk from Whitefriar Grill
