Of This Brave Time
Directed by Conall Morrison
If after years, if years find us together,
How we shall tell each other the old tale
Of this brave time…
The Sentimentalist – Tomas Mac Donagh
In 1947 the Irish government established the Bureau of Military History to record the experiences of those who took part in the fight for independence. Fearghal McGarry’s Rebels: Voices from the Easter Rising compiles a selection of these first-hand accounts into a compelling account of the Easter Rising.
A new play from Jimmy Murphy, Of This Brave Time dramatises a collection of these fascinating statements. Don’t miss this chance to hear on stage the voices of those who experienced Easter 1916 first-hand.
