The Plough and the Stars at the National Theatre

National Theatre, London

Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Irish writer Sean O’Casey’s greatest play The Plough and the Stars at the National Theatre.

To mark the centenary of the Easter Rising, acclaimed director Howard Davies brings to life Irish writer Sean O’Casey’s greatest play The Plough and the Stars.

Featuring Stephen Kennedy, Justine Mitchell and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor.

The Plough and the Stars runs from 20 July 2016 until 22 October 2016 at the National Theatre.

STORY

From November 1915 to Easter 1916, as the rebellion builds to a climax half a mile away, the disparate residents of a Dublin tenement go about their lives, peripheral to Ireland’s history.

Sean O’Casey places a fixed lens to watch, mercilessly objective, as a dozen vivid characters come and go – selfless, hilarious and desperate by turns – while the heroic myth of Ireland is fought over elsewhere.

CAST

The cast includes Stephen Kennedy, Justine Mitchell and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor.

CREATIVE

Directed by Howard Davies with design by Vicki Mortimer, lighting by James Farncombe, music by Stephen Warbeck and sound design by Paul Groothuis. Playwright: Sean O’Casey.
