This Christmas the Abbey Theatre marks the centenary of the 1913 Dublin Lockout with a new version of James Plunkett’s The Risen People.
The Risen People was the inspiration for Plunkett’s best-selling novel Strumpet City. Set in the shadow of the Lockout, this epic story of struggle and solidarity is told through the familiar characters of Annie, Fitz, Rashers and Hennessy.
This is a new adaptation by director Jimmy Fay in collaboration with movement director Colin Dunne and composer and musical director Conor Linehan.
A defining moment in Irish history is brought vividly to life through music, movement and song.
