About this show

Dermot Bolger's play, Walking the Road, is an act of repatriation for Ireland's forgotten heroes, seeking to give voice to men whose lives and untimely deaths have traditionally undermined the linear narrative of nationalist Irish history. But like thousands of fellow Irishmen who died in that war he was condemned to another limbo, the limbo of never having their stories publicly told. Hovering in the half-light of memories, it vividly and imaginatively tries to follow Ledwidge on one final journey after his death as he finds himself once again walking the road that he once walked. Unseen, they walk alongside him, but where are they walking to and will any of them ever reach home?
