BEWLEY’S CAFÉ THEATRE is proud to present...
THE RISING OF THE MOON
By Lady Augusta Gregory
A secluded pier on a moonlit night. Officers of the state search for a dangerous rebel recently escaped from gaol. They fear he will flee by boat.
As the Sergeant keeps solitary watch, he encounters a poor singer who will challenge his authority and his loyalties.
Lady Gregory’s The Rising of the Moon is a stark exploration of nationalism, the tensions that arise from it and the questions we ask ourselves when our beliefs are challenged. One of her best-known plays, it is a tense and comic political allegory that’s as provocative now as when it was written in 1907.
