Saturday 29th April 1916: Six days of armed insurrection
and the exhausted leaders of the Easter Rising are holed
up in number 16 Moore Street. A young nurse, Elizabeth
O’Farrell, is chosen to carry Pearse’s offer of
surrender to the British forces. Winding her way
through war-torn streets, braving machine gun fire,
Elizabeth delivers her message to General Lowe and
so the leaders begin their journey to Kilmainham Gaol
and the firing squad.
Cast Doubling is possible. See Original Production for details.
