The Plough And The Stars at Lyric Hammersmith

From to

About

Following a sell-out season at the Abbey Theatre as part of the 100th anniversary celebrations of the 1916 Easter Rising, as well as a successful Irish and US tour, The Plough and the Stars, comes to the Lyric as a co-production with the Abbey Theatre.

Th' time is rotten ripe for revolution

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?

This is a dynamic re-imagining: loyal to the spirit of O'Casey's play whilst unleashing contemporary resonances for a modern audience.

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 Ireland in 1916.

Olivier Award-winning director Sean Holmes brings a new perspective to Sean O'Casey's absorbing play, which was nominated for 4 Irish Times Theatre Awards in 2016.

A Lyric Hammersmith and Abbey Theatre production.
