To Have to Shoot Irishmen archiveEaster morning, 1916. Gunshots ring out in the Dublin streets. In her suburban sitting-room Hanna prepares for revolution. While Frank walks through the crowds calling for peace, John walks through his nightmares of the trenches and sees a city soaked in blood. 18-year-old William fearfully reports to the barracks for duty, determined to serve the British army with honour. But can honour survive the chaos of conflict, and once unleashed can violence ever be contained? Inspired by true events, this absorbing production weaves movement and live folk song into a stirring tale of militarism, corruption and the power of rebellion.


Gerard Kearns (Frank), Elinor Lawless (Hanna), Robbie O'Neill (William), Russell Richardson (Vane)
