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

On July 1, 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 Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme directed by Headlong’s Artistic Director, Jeremy Herrin.

In the extraordinary circumstances of World War I, eight ordinary men are utterly changed. This iconic war play by Frank McGuinness is a powerful portrayal of mortality, love and loss.

The UK tour will include  Citizens Theatre and Liverpool Playhouse. 

Tour dates in Northern Ireland are co-presented with the Lyric Theatre, Belfast. The tour will open on the Dankse Bank stage at the Lyric Theatre before travelling to venues across Northern Ireland.

"An dream lenar bhain mé, dream nach bhfuil dearmad déanta agam orthu, dream nach féidir a sárú a fháil, choinnigh siad guaim orthu féin, agus fuair siad bás."

Ar an 1 Iúil 1916, bhí 36ú Rannán Uladh páirteach i gceann de na cathanna ba fhuiltí i stair an duine: Cath an Somme.

Céad bliain ina dhiaidh sin, cuireann Amharclann na Mainistreach comhléiriú mór nua de Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme ar stáitse faoi stiúir Stiúrthóir Ealaíonta Headlong, Jeremy Herrin.

In eachtraí urghnácha an Chéad Chogaidh Dhomhanda, athraítear go hiomlán saol ochtar fear a chaith gnáthshaol go dtí sin. Tugtar léiriú éifeachtach ar an mbás, ar an ngrá agus ar chailliúint sa dráma cogaidh íocónach seo le Frank McGuinness.

Áireofar le camchuairt na Breataine  Citizens Theatre agus Liverpool Playhouse. 

Cuirfear an dráma ar an stáitse i dTuaisceart Éireann i bpáirt leis an Lyric Theatre, Béal Feirste. Cuirfear tús leis an gcamchuairt ar stáitse Dankse Bank ag an Lyric Theatre sula rachaidh sé chuig ionaid ar fud Thuaisceart Éireann.
