Adapted by Paddy Scully from David Rudkin's original radio play.
Roger Casement's remains (or what purported to be Casement's remains) were exhumed from their previous location in a British prison and returned to Ireland in 1965 where they were granted a state funeral at Glasnevin Cemetery, instead of Casement's beloved Murlough Bay in Co. Antrim. The play focusses on the living Casement as he wrote his famous diaries and on the personification of his disembodied bones, and grapples with his ultimate dilemma, the divisions of identity between Ulsterman and Irishman, English Man and Irishman.
Cast doubling is possible. See original production for details.
