In recognition of its 100th anniversary, The Plough and the Stars, Sean O'Casey's riveting story of the Irish Easter Rising, will come to Columbus through a collaborative partnership between Ohio State’s College of Arts and Sciences and CAPA (Columbus Association for the Performing Arts).
Olivier Award-winning director Sean Holmes brings a new perspective to O'Casey's absorbing play that tells the story not from the heroic governmental slant but from the blue collar, working man. The Plough and the Stars was first performed at the Abbey Theatre in 1926.
This production will tour Ireland before touring North America, including performances at the Kennedy Center, Harvard University and Ohio State. Tickets $38, $48, $68, CAPA Box Office, (614) 469-0939 or Ohio State Theatre Ticket Office, (614) 292-2295.
