Dates/Times & Buy Tickets
A NEW PLAY WITH SONGS BY LIZZIE NUNNERY
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, 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?Listen to "Shoulder to Shoulder" by Lizzie Nunnery and Vidar Norheim which will feature in the forthcoming production of TO HAVE TO SHOOT IRISHMEN.
An Almanac Arts production directed by Gemma Kerr
and supported by Oppenheim-John Downes Memorial Trust, Arts Council England and Unity Theatre Trust.
