Irish Repertory Theatre Co. UK Presents

Reminiscences Of An Irish Suffragette’

Written and Directed By Rosalind Scanlon

Staring Ailis Duff

This powerful one woman show pays tribute to Ireland’s suffragette ‘Hanna Sheehy-Skeffington’. It portrays her fight for Irish women’s suffrage, her time spent in Mountjoy Prison, her work during Dublin’s 1913 ‘Lockout’ and her harrowing and unforgettable experiences during Ireland’s Easter Rising in April 1916. Originally produced at The Tabard Theatre in 1987, as a much shorter play, playwright Rosalind Scanlon has developed the script and now brings it back to The Tabard, to mark the Centenary of ‘Ireland’s 1916 Rising.’

‘A gripping, unforgettable and compelling piece of theatre – so simply told’. Not to be missed! City Limits (1987)

‘This play leaves one with an unpartisan sense of rage and has the authority of successfully invoked history’ What’s On In London.

‘This play cuts to the heart and offers a vivid sense of stirring times - It is truly an enriching portrait of a lady of whom Dublin can be justly proud.’ Irish Times

‘The Sheehy-Skeffingtons were remarkable and courageous people and it is with great love and care that Rosalind Scanlon has assembled this powerful portrait.’ TIME OUT
