How to Shoot an Irishman

How to Shoot an Irishman

by Lizzie Nunnery

Could peace come after? After what? Who will we be?Easter morning, 1916. Gunshots ring out in the Dublin streets. In her suburban sitting-room Hanna prepares for revolution.

Frank walks through the crowds calling for peace, while John recalls the trenches and sees a city soaked in blood.

Eighteen-year-old William fearfully reports to the barracks for duty, determined to serve the British army with honour.

Inspired by true events, this absorbing play weaves movement and folk song into a stirring tale of militarism, corruption and the power of rebellion.
