About The Plough and the Stars

Gaiety Theatre Dublin: 2018

‘refreshed, high-energy restaging’  ★ ★ ★ ★ - The Guardian

Seen by over 50,000 people in Ireland and the US, Sean Holmes refreshed, high-energy restaging of The Plough and the Stars returns after it’s huge success in 2016.

Th' time is rotten ripe for revolution

Set amid the tumult of the Easter Rising, The Plough and the Stars is the story of ordinary lives ripped apart by the idealism of the time.

The residents of a Dublin tenement shelter from the violence that sweeps through the city’s streets. A revolution that will shape the country’s future rages around them. What kind of Ireland awaits them?

The Plough and the Stars was first performed at the Abbey Theatre in 1926. The audience rioted. Now regarded as a masterpiece, this provocative play is an essential part of our understanding of 1916.

Recently performed during the centenary of the Easter Rising, Olivier Award-winning director Sean Holmes returns with this production of Sean O’Casey’s absorbing play.
