Theatre: The Plough and The Stars (audio described and captioned performance)
16 Apr 2016 (Past)
- Audio Description
Set amid the tumult of the Easter Rising, The Plough and the Stars is the story of ordinary lives ripped apart by the idealism of the time.
The residents of a Dublin tenement shelter from the violence that sweeps through the city’s streets. A revolution that will shape the country’s future rages around them. What kind of Ireland awaits them?
The Plough and the Stars was first performed at the Abbey Theatre in 1926. The audience rioted. Now regarded as a masterpiece, this provocative play is an essential part of our understanding of 1916.
Olivier Award-winning director Sean Holmes will bring a new perspective to Sean O’Casey’s absorbing play. The Plough and the Stars is one of the highlights of the Abbey’s centenary programme with performances coinciding with Easter 2016.
