Event Description

This intergenerational, interactive drama focused on European and Irish events in 1916. The Great War, the Dublin lockout and the events leading up to the Easter Rising and its aftermath. These events are all inter-connected and have a European context and this event demonstrates this in an informative way.

Patsy Cavanagh led his audience through these historical events in a very sensitive way. He involved everyone in the drama while getting across the message that while we are all now members of the European Union our past always had an important European context.
