The multiple Tony Award-winning ASSASSINS lays bare the lives of nine people who assassinated (or tried to assassinate) the President of the United States. The nation’s most notorious assassins gather on stage to violently pursue a twisted American Dream… Stephen Sondheim’s signature blend of intelligently stunning lyrics and beautiful music combine in this bold, original, disturbing, and alarmingly funny musical.

Set amid the tumult of the Easter Rising, The Plough and the Stars is the story of ordinary lives ripped apart by the idealism of the time. The residents of a Dublin tenement shelter from the violence that sweeps through the city’s streets. A revolution that will shape the country’s future rages around them. What kind of Ireland awaits them? The Plough and the Stars was first performed at the Abbey Theatre in 1926. The audience rioted. Now regarded as a masterpiece, this provocative play is an essential part of our understanding of 1916. Recently performed during the centenary of the Easter Rising, Olivier Award-winning director Sean Holmes returns with this production of Sean O’Casey’s absorbing play.

The fields are full of animal carcasses and there is a stench in the air. Set in a close-knit farming community, Marina Carr’s darkly comic and explosive play pushes a family to the limits.
