Back by Popular Demand, a Reprise of the new Casement Play
Roger Casement is a figure who is central to the story of the Easter Rising (Dublin 1916), but also a man who strode the world stage as a courageous reforming anti-colonialist. How did a lord of the realm, and a passionate humanitarian and diplomat who changed the course of colonial history, come to be hanged in Pentonville Prison as a traitor? How strong was the case against him? Who defended him? What dark forces mobilised against him?
This play has been written to mark the centenary of Casement’s execution, and proceeds will go to a revived Irish History Circle.
