Weaved through song, story, music and poetry the play chronicles the tapestry that formed the background to the rising, the insurrection itself and the heroes both celebrated and forgotten.

The music and songs are performed by the internationally acclaimed Irish History band The Druids, world famous Uileann Piper Tommy Keane, Caoímhe Hogarty and Tenor Shay Roche.
Narrator Joe Egan and Seanchaí Mick O’Brien are joined on stage by acclaimed actors, Kevin Shortall, Sean O’Brien, Barra de Róiste, Fr. Bryan Shortall ofm cap. and Harry Price.
