The Plough and the Stars

A screening of The Plough and the Stars will take place at the Nerve Centre on June 4. 

Sean O’Casey’s controversial play about Easter week was first performed in 1926 and adapted to the screen by director John Ford in 1937.

While the central part of Nora Clitheroe was played by Hollywood actress Barbara Stanwyck, other major characters are played by some of the Abbey Theatre’s finest actors, including Una O’Connor, F. J. McCormick and Barry Fitzgerald.

Patrick Pearse is played by Fitzgerald’s brother Arthur Shields who fought in the GPO during the Easter Rising.
