Can art be propaganda? Can propaganda be art?
First shown at the Bread and Roses in Clapham in January 2017 and then the London Irish Centre in Camden, The Irish Play is in three acts, each set backstage during performances of ground-breaking Irish plays: Cathleen ni Hoolihan in 1902, The Playboy of the Western World in 1907 and The Plough and the Stars in 1926.
This 50 minute drama is based on the published writings of William Butler Yeats and Lady Augusta Gregory, who founded the Irish Literary Theatre, and Patrick Pearse, a charismatic but troubled schoolteacher and the first of the leaders of the Easter Rising to face the firing squad.
How can national pride turn nasty? In this era of Brexit, Trump and Fake News, what can the Irish experience teach the world?
