The Abbey Theatre Brings THE PLOUGH AND THE STARS to Columbus
by BWW News Desk - Sep 19, 2016

The Abbey Theatre, National Theatre of Ireland, Tours New Production of Sean O'Casey's The Plough and the Stars to Columbus October 26-30 In 1916, Ireland raged against British rule, resulting in a six-day, armed rebellion that became known as the Easter Rising. The Plough and the Stars is the story of ordinary lives ripped apart by the idealism of the time, as the residents of a Dublin tenement seek shelter from the violence sweeping through the city's streets. Revolution has finally arrived, but what kind of Ireland awaits? When The Plough and the Stars was first performed at the Abbey Theatre in 1926, the audience rioted. Today regarded as a masterpiece, this provocative play is an indispensable window into the political culture of Ireland at one of its most pivotal moments in history. (more...)

BWW Review: Sean O'Casey's THE PLOUGH AND THE STARS Becomes An Epic Tale Of History And Bloodshed
by Justin J Sacramone - Oct 5, 2016

Now celebrating its 90th anniversary, The Plough and the Stars has been given a reimagined revival by The Abbey Theatre, Ireland's National Theatre and is on tour at the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, MA until October 9th. This Brechtian inspired production is as alien as it is fresh and reminds us of a plightful world outside of our current political climate. Parallels could easily be drawn from turn of the century Ireland to 2016 America, but that's not the story The Abbey Theatre or director Sean Holmes are interested in telling. Not everything on the American Stage needs a path back to us. The Abbey's approach is more vast and profound as evidenced in an early line 'There's no such thing as an Irishman, or an Englishman, or a German or a Turk; we're all only human bein's.' (more...)

BWW Review: Touring Production of THE PLOUGH AND THE STARS Complicated, Confusing but Enduring in Emotion
by Amanda Etchison - Oct 29, 2016

Originally written by Sean O'Casey, the play, which presents an unflinching criticism of the 1916 Easter Rising, sparked riots when it was performed in Ireland in 1926. But in front of a crowd of mostly college students on Thursday evening, a reimagined version produced different sentiments -- mainly confusion, but ultimately, empathy. (more...)
