Full cast and creative team have been announced for the Irish Repertory Theatre's production of Richard F. Stockton's Prisoner of the Crown, to run May 14-July 6, with an official opening slated for May 22. The production, which features additional material by Richard T. Herd, will be directed by Ciaran O'Reilly.

The play focuses on the trial of Sir Roger Casement, an Irish patriot and one of the world's great humanitarians, who was sentenced to be hanged for treason after the release of diaries of alleged explicit account of Casement's promiscuous homosexual lifestyle. However, many observers believed the diaries had been forged by the crown forces who were determined that Casement pay the ultimate price for his role in the Easter, 1916 uprising.

The cast features Peter Cormican, Patrick Fitzgerald, Philip Goodwin, Emma O'Donnell, Tim Ruddy, Ian Stuart, John Vennema, and John Windsor-Cunningham. The creative team includes Charlie Corcoran (sets), David Toser (costumes), Brian Nason (lighting), and Zachary Williamson (sound).
