'Of This Brave Time' performance, London
Ireland’s national theatre, the Abbey Theatre, bring one of their most recent commissions, Of This Brave Time by Jimmy Murphy, for a very special performance to the London Irish Centre. What questions would you ask if you could speak to someone who experienced Easter 1916 first hand? How did it feel? Why were you there? Were you scared? Of This Brave Time is based on eye witness testimonies of the Rising, taken from Fearghal McGarry’s book Rebels: Voices from the Easter Rising.Jimmy Murphy has woven these stories together, giving voice to those who lived through the Rising. Join us for this powerful play of this eye-opening work, directed by Conall Morrison.
