‘It’s not an easy thing to take up a gun and go out and kill  some person without strong convictions or justification’ – IRA Green Book

“’t is, an’ it isn’t; it’s both bad an’ good…’ – Mrs. Gogan

Nora Clitheroe lives in a tenement house with other ordinary people. Their lives are about to be rocked by the Rising. THEATREclub’s production of Sean O’Casey’s The Plough and the StarsIt’s Not Over – will bring back rioting like it’s 1926.

‘It will take place in a theatre, but it is not a play. It is a campaign. You will watch a re-enactment of the past 50 years of violent political conflict. We are working with former IRA Volunteers. It’s four and a half hours long. There’ll be a bar and a live band, maybe bingo.’

In a year of revisionism, whitewashing, apologies and double speak; We refuse to commemorate 1916. It’s not over. It never started. Let’s look at 1966.

Warning: Do not talk about it.
