The Plough and the Stars will be on stage in the Excel Theatre, Tipperary Town on February 29th, March 1st and March 2nd.
The work of the Forge Players has become a welcomed annual event in the calendar of theatre in County Tipperary and further afield.
This year’s play has four acts and is set in Dublin in the period of the Easter Rising of 1916. It is a great story about the real lives of people of Ireland at that time. Follow the characters and begin to understand the many different aspects and back-stories to this turbulent time of Irish history.
With a cast of 16 people there is much to admire in the acting from the talanted bunch in this production. The play is well worth seeing as it has an excellent script with a deep and rich humour. This production also has an amazing hand-built set (designed by Liam Carey and built by Liam with the assistance of Seamus Curtin).
The play is under the direction of Michael O’Donoghue, a man with a reputation that is synomonus with excellence in theatre and musical circles.
