Photo Flash: First Look at THE PLOUGH AND THE STARS at the Lyric Hammersmith
Following a sell-out season at The Abbey Theatre as part of the 100th anniversary celebrations of the 1916 Easter Rising, as well as a successful Irish and US tour, The Plough and the Stars comes to the Lyric Hammersmith as a co-production with The Abbey Theatre.
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. 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?
This is a dynamic re-imagining: loyal to the spirit of O'Casey's play whilst unleashing contemporary resonances for a modern audience.
