Share in the comedy of The Rising of the Moon (1907) as a man struggles with his conscience to arrest an escaped republican prisoner who knows how to manipulate a situation.

Experience the difficulties in The Gaol Gate (1906) of two uneducated Irish peasant women as they face the unexpected with the powers that be.

After a sell-out run in summer 2023 in Dublin, here is another chance to see two rarely performed one act plays. One comedy and one dramatic about the lives of Irish people living through a volatile and rebellious era in Irish history in the first decade of the 20th Century. A timely revival for the 21st Century examining the impact of colonialism on people living with conflict. Performed by a young multi-ethnic ensemble of Irish actors for this 2024 production. An exciting theatre experience that’s not to be missed.

WRITTEN BY Lady Augusta Gregory
