Superb Irish Theatre: INSIDE THE GPO
A note from Artistic Director, J. R. Sullivan:
Dublin’s Fishamble: The New Play Company, has been exciting audiences with thrilling work through three decades. Now, Fishamble is offering an online streaming special for Easter Week that I wanted you to know about. When Fishamble’s artistic director Jim Culleton contacted me about Inside the GPO and the online offer, I immediately knew that an opportunity to see this unique production was something to share and that is why ITC is reaching out to you today.
Inside The GPO was praised in the press as “superb”…”utterly memorable”…and ”breathtaking.” Colin Murphy’s play was hailed as a must-see cultural event at the heart of the centennial 2016 commemorations and now Fishamble is bringing it back as an online streaming event.
For five days only, it all begins on April 1 and continues through April 5.
Quoting Fishamble: “This unprecedented documentary drama, directed by Jim Culleton, was a once-in-a-century opportunity to experience the Easter Rising, in the main hall of the GPO itself. Audiences witnessed the rebel leadership navigate the perils of the Rising across the five days during which they occupied the GPO.”
Next week, audiences can see this remarkable production in the online presentation of the 2016 site-specific Inside the GPO. Click for more information on the show and booking information is attached. I hope you will join me and all of us at Irish Theatre of Chicago in this rare chance to experience such an important and compelling work.
