Seán O’Casey’s timeless classic, The Plough and The Stars, revived in recent years by director Sean Holmes, returns to Dublin, this time at the Gaiety Theatre.

The Plough and The Stars is the third part of the O’Casey’s Dublin Trilogy, and is set in 1915 and 1916, around the Easter Rising. It tells the story of ordinary lives ripped apart by the idealism of the time. At its early performances in the 1920s, the play caused riots, but it has long been considered an established part of the Irish theatrical canon.

Sean Holmes' version of The Plough and The Stars has refreshed and defamiliarised the play by utilising a more contemporary setting and introducing some moments of alarming cabaret, but the themes remain as strong as ever.

Having already wowed the Abbey Theatre in 2016 and successfully toured the US, you can be guaranteed that Holmes’ take on The Plough and The Stars is a winner.
