The Plough and The Stars

About This Show

A.R.T. brings the Abbey Theatre’s acclaimed production of The Plough and the Stars during the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising. As revolution sweeps Ireland, the residents of a Dublin tenement take shelter from the violence that sweeps through the city’s streets. Sean O’Casey—one of Ireland’s most renowned and controversial playwrights—captures a conflict between idealism and ordinary lives. Celebrating nearly a century of the Irish nation state, this production by the national theater of Ireland, staged by Olivier Award-winning director Sean Holmes, will bring a new perspective to O’Casey’s absorbing play.
