In the Fires of Rebellion and War

Garry Hynes in conversation with Fintan O’Toole

A century ago, Ireland was reborn in the fires of rebellion and war. The playwright Sean O’Casey bore witness to these seismic events and dramatised them as the Dublin Trilogy, three great works of Irish theatre, full of history, humanity and humour — The Plough and the Stars, The Shadow of a Gunman and Juno and the Paycock. 100 years later, Garry Hynes has woven O’Casey’s three plays into an epic Druid theatrical event of conflict, national identity and the human toll of war.

To discuss these plays and incredible production Garry is joined in conversation by journalist and author Fintan O’Toole.
