The Plough & The Stars

From November 1915 to Easter 1916, as the rebellion builds to a climax half a mile away, the disparate residents of a Dublin tenement go about their lives, peripheral to Ireland’s history.

Sean O’Casey places a fixed lens to watch as a dozen vivid characters come and go – selfless, hilarious and desperate by turns – while the heroic myth of Ireland is fought over elsewhere.

To mark the centenary of the Easter Rising, Howard Davies, who memorably brought O’Casey’s The Silver Tassie to the NT stage in 2014, now tackles his greatest play

    This play was beyond my expectations. The whole cast were superb. I felt immersed in the story as the acting was so good and the sets were amazing. The whole play was thought provoking and the ending was very moving. The programme too was worth buying as it told the story of the pkayright!!!
