Imagine the story of the 1916 Rising told in a way you’ve never heard before, through music, song and dance by two characters with two radically different points of view. The play ‘The Rising: And By Way Of Interludes World War 1’ does just that. Rachel Breslin went along to rehearsals at a busy city centre venue, The Powerscourt Theatre.
‘The Rising: And By Way Of Interludes World War 1’ is currently on tour. It plays this evening at The Theatre Royal in Waterford, in An Grianán Theatre in Letterkenny on February 27th, The Riverbank Arts Centre in Newbridge on March 22nd and Powerscourt Theatre in Dublin from Match 11th – 21st.
