The Plough and the Stars archiveThis four act play set in war-torn Dublin in 1916 portrays the needs and aspirations of a group of neighbours in a timeless story containing elements of both tragedy and humour.

Uncle Peter, who appears resolutely stuck in the past and at war with himself and those around him, sees Covey, a young man seeking to move forward, as his tormentor. Nora a young wife desperately tries to persuade her husband not to go to war, while Fluther Good weaves a seam of goodness throughout the play. People of different religious persuasions rub shoulders, and loyalties are frequently stretched as the story moves towards an ending full of pathos: prejudices are never far away in this tight knit community.
