Easter Rising and Thereafter archiveApril 24 1916 - Easter Monday - a group of Irish nationalists stage a rebellion against the British government in Ireland in an attempt to establish an independent Republic. Within a week, the insurrection is suppressed and more than 2,000 people are dead or injured. The leaders of the rebellion are executed, and a mythology is born. Timed to coincide with the centenary of the insurrection, Sir Christopher Bland's The Easter Rising - and thereafter is part drama, part revue, part session. Incorporating poems, songs and speeches by W.B. Yeats, Dominic Behan, James Mangan, Louis MacNeice, Walter Savage Landor, Roger Casement, Winston Churchill, Sean O'Casey and others, it reveals the contrasting takes of the Easter Rising, the War of Independence, the Civil War and their legacies for Brittain and Ireland. Shedding light on this often skewed period of history and in so doing, illuminating it.
