The national and international tour of ‘Mac Piarais i bPictiúir‘ concluded as part of Oireachtas Chois Fharraige’s programme of events on 23rd September 2016.
Fíbín presents “Mac Piarais i bPictiúir” written and devised by Harry McGee and Dara McGee.
“Mac Piarais i bPictiúir” is a striking reimagination of Ireland’s 1916 Easter Rising. The insurrection led by a small group of idealists resulted in a heavy defeat with all the leaders executed. However, it was the spark that lit the bonfire, that culminated in an independent Irish.
The performance focuses on five leading figures of the Rising with a dramatic unexpected twist at the end.
