Brigit Saint Brigit Theatre Company Presents “Rising—A One Act” adapted by Lisabeth C. Buchelt and Barry Murphy. “Rising” is a play that captures the reality and the confusion of the Irish Rebellion, along with the poignancy of the heroic spark that ignited Ireland’s march to independence from Britain that was the Easter Rising of 1916. The performance will be followed by a talkback with the cast.
“Rising” is directed by Cathy Kurz, the artistic director of the Brigit St Brigit Theatre Company. The cast includes Eric Griffith as The Witness; Lisabeth C. Buchelt as An Chailleach; and Barry Murphy as The Poet.
Doors open at 11:00 AM. Seating is limited.
