VIDEO: Sneak Peek at 2016 Best New Play Winner, THE FINAL DAYS OF WOLFE TONE


The Music City Irish Fest presents, direct from a sold-out run in New York, the Winner Best New Play of 2016: THE FINAL DAYS OF WOLFE TONE. Ciaran Sheehan (star of Phantom of the Opera and Les Miserables) leads a cast of Broadway veterans in a brilliant new play that chronicles the finals days of "the George Washington of Ireland," who led the Irish Rebellion of 1798 against the British.

Check out a sneak peek below!

"The Final Days of Wolfe Tone is a riveting play with fully realized characters and harrowing moments. This play was able to completely rip my heart out with its convictions and brilliant writing." -

"A powerful historical drama full of heart, humor, and tragic beauty." - Hudson Valley News Network

"A remarkable story that the whole world should hear, and so very beautifully told." - Irish Arts Forum

"Ciaran Sheehan gave a heroic, yet heartbreaking portrayal," -

The Tennessee premier of the play features the entire award-winning, New York cast, including Ciaran Sheehan (the Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables), Peter Cormican (Phantom of the Opera, James Joyce's The Dead) and Brian Maffitt.

As one of the founding fathers of the Irish revolution, Wolfe Tone rubbed elbows with such historical luminaries as Napoleon, George Washington and Alexander Hamilton and the play details his dealings with each of them and their respective roles in his story. Their saga is full of colorful historical characters as well as hilarious anecdotes about great historical figures, all told with that unique Irish dramatic charm. This St. Patrick's Day, The Final Days of Wolfe Tone is a richly entertaining show for the entire family. And you don't have to be Irish to love Wolfe Tone!
