On 1 July 1916, the 36th Ulster Division took part in one of the bloodiest battles in human history: the Battle of the Somme. One hundred years on, the Abbey Theatre presents a major new co-production of this iconic war play by Frank McGuinness.

Ar an 1 Iúil 1916, bhí 36ú Rannán Uladh páirteach i gceann de na cathanna b’fhuiltí i stair an duine: Cath Somme. Céad bliain ina dhiaidh sin, cuireann Amharclann na Mainistreach comhléiriú ollmhór nua den dráma íocónach cogaidh seo de chuid Frank McGuinness ar stáitse.

Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme is an Abbey Theatre, Headlong, Citizens Theatre, and Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse Theatres co-production.

"Those I belonged to, those I have not forgotten, the irreplaceable ones, they kept their nerve, and they died."

In the extraordinary circumstances of World War I, eight ordinary men are changed, changed utterly. This iconic war play by Frank McGuinness is a powerful portrayal of mortality, love and loss. What more have we to tell each other?
