Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Kitty O’Connor is an Everywoman. She is all things to all people and her many roles will be recognized by women everywhere. She is a wife, a mother, a daughter, a housekeeper, employer, friend, nurse, and neighbor, and all these roles collide in a chaotic twenty four hours when her wayward nephew arrives at her home, on the run from the British police. Set in suburban Dublin in1953 Kitty’s Hive is packed full of excitement, tension, pathos, and humor. Kitty must care for the fragile, bedridden, Alphonsus, the endearing young Danny, her bickering daughters, and her irascible father, Sean Lynch. When an investigating Sergeant Hennessy eyes the family’s maid with more than a professional scrutiny, and Kitty’s husband adds fury and friction to the mix, her position becomes almost impossible.
