Fresh from its London run and a successful Irish and US tour, the Abbey Theatre and Lyric Hammersmith co-production of The Plough and The Stars, starring SHA’s brilliant Charlie Cassen as Sgt. Tinley, opens at the Gaiety Theatre on the 24th April.
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.
This is a dynamic re-imagining: loyal to the spirit of O’Casey’s play whilst unleashing contemporary resonances for a modern audience.
