"The Plough and the Stars" at Annenberg Center Live

Onstage at Annenberg Center Live is the Abbey Theatre's revival of Sean O'Casey's dark comedy The Plough and the Stars, October 13-16. The third in the playwright's "Dublin Trilogy," the production explores the Easter Uprising, one of the most important moments in Irish history, telling the story of how ordinary lives of residents of a Dublin tenement are ripped apart while they shelter from the rising violence in the street. Commemorating the 100th anniversary of the birth of the Irish Republic, this drama is an essential part of understanding Ireland's 1916 revolution, 3680 Walnut Street, Philadelphia.
