A dramatic re-creation of the life of Constance Gore-Booth/Countess Markievicz and the 1916 Rising, written and performed by Maura Logue.

Athchruthú drámata ar shaol Constanz Gore-Booth/na Cuntaoise Markievicz agus Éirí Amach 1916, scríofa agus léirithe ag Maura Logue.

It is Autumn of 1916. Much has happened since the Easter Rising. In May 1916 the leaders of the Rising were executed in Kilmainham Gaol. Within earshot, in a damp cell, Constance Markievicz heard each shot.

She, a traitor to the crown, awaited her sentencing. It was decided to transport her to Aylesbury Jail in England. Out of sight out of mind, being part of that rationale.

Countess Markievicz, kept at times in isolation or in solitary confinement, had time to reflect on sacrifices made and emotional impacts of her actions, on family, in particular on her daughter Maeve.

This performance views the Countess in a more reflective mood, commenting from a more intimate personal perspective, that of fractured love within familial bonds, in a time of conflict.

Fómhar na bliana 1916 atá ann. Is iomaí rud atá tarlaithe ó Éirí Amach na Cásca. I mí na Bealtaine 1916 cuireadh ceannairí an Éirí Amach chun báis i bPríosún Chill Mhaighneann. Chuala an Chuntaois Markievicz gach urchar agus í ina luí i gcillín fuar tais in aice láimhe.

Bhí sise, bean a thréig an choróin, ag fanacht lena pianbhreith. Socraíodh í a thabhairt go Príosún Aylesbury i Sasana. Seachnaíonn súil ní nach bhfeiceann, agus bhí sé sin mar chuid den réasúnaíocht a bhí leis sin.

Bhí triail ag an gCuntaois Markievicz, a bhí á haonrú ag amanna nó i ngaibhniú aonair, machnamh a dhéanamh ar na híobairtí a rinneadh agus ar an tionchar mothúchánach a bhí ag na rudaí a rinne sí, an tionchar ar a teaghlach, go háirithe a hiníon Maeve.

Féachtar sa léiriú seo ar an gCuntaois ar bhealach níos machnamhaí, agus tugtar tuairimí ó dhearcadh i bhfad níos dlúithe agus níos pearsanta, de ghrá scoilte laistigh de cheangail clainne, i dtréimhse coimhlinte.
