Presented as a staged reading, this play cycle in six parts charts in epic verse and stirring dialogue the life and career Ireland's greatest revolutionary, James Connolly, from his birth in Scotland through his political maturation in Ireland and America to his last moments in front of a British firing squad.

First seen in a 24 hour performance in Dublin at Easter 1975, this ambitious revival – directed by exciting Irish director Shane Dempsey – will be the first time that the entire cycle has ever been presented continuously in the UK.

It plays on Sunday and Monday evenings from 4–18 April, and culminates in two all-day “come and go as you please” performances of the entire play cycle on the anniversary of the Easter Rising itself.

“Timely revival exploring the life of a key figure in the Irish republican movement... Spirited performances. ”
