Christmas Theatre Visit 2013

The Risen People by James Plunkett

On the occasion of the centenary of the 1913 Lockout in Dublin, the Abbey Theatre are presenting a new version of James Plunkett’s play The Risen People.

It was one of the highlights of our Active Retirement's recent short break in Dublin.

We witnessed the struggle of families to survive during the Strike and Lockout.

The story was told in the form of music, song and drama and the interaction of the actors with one another was expertly done and a joy to watch.          We were amazed at the way movement was created and how special the songs were, both old and new.                          It was a great night's entertainment. We enjoyed it very much despite the plays serious theme.

It is running in the Abbey until the end of January and is well worth a visit.
