To Have to Shoot Irishmen on Friday 26th October 2018

A new play with songs by Lizzie Nunnery

A new play with songs by Lizzie Nunnery Could peace come after? After what? Who will we be? Easter morning, 1916. Gunshots ring out in the Dublin streets. In her suburban sitting room Hannah prepares for revolution. While Frank walks through the crowds calling for peace, John walks through his nightmares of the trenches, sees a city soaked in blood. 18-year-old William fearfully reports to the barracks for duty, determined to serve the British army with honour. But can honour survive the chaos of conflict, and once unleashed can violence ever be contained? Inspired by true events, this absorbing production weaves movement and live folk song in to a stirring tale of militarism, corruption and the power of rebellion. An Almanac Arts production in association with Liverpool Irish Festival Supported by Oppenheim-John Downes Memorial Trust and Unity Theatre Trust Script originally commissioned by Druid Theatre
