The Plough and the Stars National Tour

Theatre: The Plough and the Stars (ISL performance)

14 Apr 2016 (Past)

The Abbey Theatre

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 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.

Sign language interpreted performance: Thursday 14th April, 7.30pm
Tickets: €18/€15

Audio-described and captioned performance: Saturday 16th April, 2pm
Tickets: €15/€13
