Sillan Players, Shercock

At the Black Pig’s Dyke By Vincent Woods

Synopsis

At the Black Pigs Dyke is a story of murder, mystery, fairy tale and tragic love. The play is set on the border of Northern and Southern Ireland where family feuds are passed down through generations. The story is told using the pagan ritual of the mummers’ play as a metaphor for Ireland at a time where people laughed at a wake and cried when a child was born. It uses a mix of music, dance, song and rhyming to move between past and present generations, telling of the struggles and hopes of a family torn apart by sectarian violence and tribal hatred.

Group History

Sillan Players were formed in 1982 by Fr Patsy Young. They have done numerous Productions over the years such as Same old Moon, Autumn Fire, Belfry, Carthaginians, The Lost Weekend, Big Maggie, The Trapp Family and Una Pooka. They have been competing on the Confined Circuit since 2009 and have made the Finals on 4 occasions.
