The Birth of a Nation by Gerard McCarthy

1916 Centenary Celebrations @ glór

The Birth of a Nation is a succinct story of Ireland’s journey to independence and contains the oldest footage ever shot in Ireland. A central scene in the film is Padraig Pearse’s famous oration at the graveside of O’Donovan Rossa, when Pearse made a call to arms eight months before the Rising took place. The grainy footage was used at the time as a propaganda tool for Republicans who were struggling to win support in advance of the Easter Rising. Other prominent revolutionary figures who appear include Michael Collins, Roger Casement, James Connolly, Eamonn Ceannt, Thomas Clarke and Erskine Childers.

Madame de Markievicz

The New Theatre presents

Written by Ann Matthews
Directed and produced by Anthony Fox

Madame de Markievicz on Trial is centred on Constance Markievicz, depicting an event in Dublin at Easter, 1916 when a policeman was fatally shot. It is set in a courtroom and a prison cell during the autumn of 1917 and the dialogue is largely based on the extensive speeches made by Markievicz during this time. William May, the prosecutor and sole fictional character in the drama is the Devil’s Advocate. He trawls through all aspects of Madam’s life to challenge the misinformation created by post 1916 propaganda. The testimonies of the witnesses are interwoven and the audience will be the ultimate judge, as they leave the theatre to decide to issue an innocent or guilty verdict.

‘... an imaginative cracker of a play, skilfully structured and acted with the kind of passion the subject needs’ Mail on Sunday
