Part of our mini-season of Irish work.
Don’t miss this ★★★★ hit production – “Tumbling poetry and lively dialogue power Lizzie Nunnery’s dynamic song-led show set during the Easter Rising” – The Guardian
UK Theatre Award-winning playwright Lizzie Nunnery presents this national debut.
‘Could peace come after? After what? Who will we be?’
Easter morning, 1916. Gunshots ring out in the Dublin streets. In her suburban sitting-room Hanna prepares for revolution.
While Frank walks through the crowds calling for peace, John walks through his nightmares of the trenches and sees a city soaked in blood.
18-year-old William fearfully reports to the barracks for duty, determined to serve the British army with honour. But can honour survive the chaos of conflict, and once unleashed can violence ever be contained?
Inspired by true events, this absorbing production weaves movement and live folk song into a stirring tale of militarism, corruption and the power of rebellion.
