Womens Workshop Performance: (Please note this event is Women Only)

Rebel Rebel

Ireland’s leading actors abandon a matinee of Cathleen Ní Houlihan. Stepping out of their costumes and taking their revolvers from beneath the Abbey stage, they march to Dublin Castle. Firing the first shots of the insurrection they destroyed the status quo and changed forever the course of Irish history.

Derived from real-life testimonies, Rebel Rebel chronicles the finite moments when the play (which more than any other symbolised the link between the cultural revival and the Irish revolution) spilled revolution from the stage onto the streets, leading to Sean’s fatal  shooting and dying in Helena’s arms on the roof of City Hall.

Food and drink served before performance and discussions afterwards.
