Poets and Patriots: The Easter Rising 1916
April 29, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Ireland’s Easter Rising was preceded by a cultural revolution in which The Abbey Theatre was founded “to bring upon the stage the deeper emotions of Ireland”.
The rebellion itself was led by a group that included many poets. On the centenary of the Rising, in which New York played an important role, this extraordinary evening will feature Irish and American poems of the past century. With poets Louis de Paor, Theo Dorgan, Eamon Grennan, Paul Muldoon, Leanne O’Sullivan, Connie Roberts and musicians Susan McKeown and Stew Stewart. Click here for reservations.
