The Trial of Padráig Pearse
Tue, 1 Nov 2016, 7:30 PM – Sat, 5 Nov 2016, 5:30 PM CDT
The North American Premiere of “The Trial of Padraig Pearse” by Anthony Russell, directed by Donal O’Hanlon and a joint production between Tara and the Newpoint Players of the Thomas D’Arcy McGee Foundation in Carlingford, Ireland. This is a ground-breaking, audience participation play that calls Padraig Pearse from the grave to answer, in the “court of history” the charge that he committed treason against Ireland. And also brought back from the grave to prosecute him? Thomas D’Arcy McGee, former Irish rebel and a founding father of Canadian Confederation. And, the audience decides the outcome!
