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.

Lonnaithe i lár an Éirí Amach, scéal atá in The Plough and the Stars maidir le saol gnáthdhaoine a scriosadh i rith tréimhse idéalachais.

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?

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 1916.

Olivier Award-winning director Sean Holmes will bring a new perspective to Sean O’Casey’s absorbing play. 

The Abbey's North American tour of the play will take place at the following venues:

  • IRELAND 100: Celebrating a Century of Irish Arts and Culture, Kennedy Center, Washington, D.C., 17.05.16-05.06.16
  • American Repertory Theater, Harvard University, Massachusetts, 28.09.16-09.10.16
  • Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, University of Pennsylvania, 12-16.11.16
  • Peak Performances at Montclair State University, New Jersey, 20-13.10.16
  • Southern Theatre, Columbus, Ohio, 26-30.10.16

Faigheann cónaitheoirí tionóntáin i mBaile Átha Cliath foscadh ón bhforéigean a tharlaíonn ar shráideanna na cathrach. Tá réabhlóid a mbeidh tionchar aige ar thodhchaí na tíre ar siúl timpeall orthu. Cén cineál Éireann atá rompu?

Léiríodh The Plough and the Stars den chéad uair in Amharclann na Mainistreach i 1926. Bhí círéib i measc an lucht féachana ag an am. Breathnaítear anois air mar shárshaothar, agus tá an dráma gríosaitheach anois mar chuid lárnach dár dtuiscint ar 1916.

Tabharfaidh an stiúrthóir Seán Holmes, a bhfuil gradam Olivier buaite aige, dearcadh nua do dhráma an-spéisiúil Sean O’Casey. 

Beidh camchuairt Amharclann na Mainistreach ar Mheiriceá Thuaidh ar siúl ag na hionaid seo a leanas:

  • IRELAND 100: Celebrating a Century of Irish Arts and Culture sa Kennedy Center, Washington, D.C., 17.05.16-05.06.16
