The Theatre of Memory Symposium Play

In this time of historical centenaries, Ireland's national theatre presented a three-day symposium to debate the role of theatre in commemoration.

Leading Irish playwrights, actors, directors and academics came together to discuss the role of memory in making theatre and the challenges of commemorating historical events. This symposium was a major event in Irish theatre and an essential occasion for theatre enthusiasts and the general public.

The Risen People Play

Organise now and stand together, brother and brother.

This Christmas the Abbey Theatre marks the centenary of the 1913 Dublin Lockout with a new version of James Plunkett's The Risen People.

The Risen People was the inspiration for Plunkett's best-selling novel Strumpet City. Set in the shadow of the Lockout, this epic story of struggle and solidarity is told through the familiar characters of Annie, Fitz, Rashers and Hennessy.

This is a new adaptation by director Jimmy Fay in collaboration with movement director Colin Dunne and composer and musical director Conor Linehan.

A defining moment in Irish history is brought vividly to life through music, movement and song.
