Set amid the tumult of the Easter Rising, The Plough and the Stars is the story of ordinary lives ripped apart by idealism. The residents of a Dublin tenement take 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. Olivier Award-winning director Sean Holmes brings a new perspective to Sean O’Casey’s absorbing play.

"You wouldn't want to pass up a chance to watch the Abbey Theatre perform The Plough and the Stars"
