THEATRE: TINTOWN by Bob Kelly

Thursday 20th February, 2020 - 20:00

| €18/€16 BOOK TICKETS NOW »

With the outbreak of WW2, the Irish government introduces internment without trial for all suspected IRA members, and Bernard Carroll – a naive young Dubliner who believes he is a revolutionary –  is swept up with hundreds of others and held in a ramshackle internment camp on the plains of the Curragh. The camp is packed with militant republicans, left-wing revolutionaries, civil war veterans.  They can leave any time they want, but there’s one catch – they must first renounce violence and take an oath of loyalty to the Irish government. They choose to stay, despite the cold and hunger – studying, training and preparing themselves for the struggle.  After all, they’re the future leaders of the secular socialist Irish Republic – aren’t they?

Written and performed by Bob Kelly

Produced by Blue Raincoat
