It's Not Over | Samuel Beckett Theatre | Oct 11-16 2016



'It’s not an easy thing to take up a gun and go out and kill  some person without strong convictions or justification' - IRA Green Book
 
“'t is, an’ it isn’t; it’s both bad an’ good…' – Mrs. Gogan
 
Nora Clitheroe lives in a tenement house with other ordinary people. Their lives are about to be rocked by the Rising. THEATREclub's production of Sean O'Casey's The Plough and the Stars - It's Not Over - will bring back rioting like it's 1926.
 
‘It will take place in a theatre, but it is not a play. It is a campaign. You will watch a re-enactment of the past 50  years of violent political conflict. We are working with former IRA Volunteers. It’s four and a half hours long.  There’ll be a bar and a live band, maybe bingo.’
 
In a year of revisionism, whitewashing, apologies and double speak; We refuse to commemorate 1916. It’s not over. It never started. Let's look at 1966.
 
Warning: Do not talk about it.
