About this event
Following the story of two sisters, OUTRAGE is a play that explores the true nature of women’s role in the Irish revolutionary wars and in particular the Civil War in 1922.
Alice and Nell play key roles in organising civic resistance and the propaganda war. They are fervent, they are funny, they are human and they – like everyone else in Ireland – become deeply conflicted as the country spins toward a shattering Civil clash that split the nation, and continues to haunt Irish politics, society and culture to this day.
OUTRAGE challenges the historical narrative we have all grown up with.
OUTRAGE is written out of the true testimony of women we have never heard about.
OUTRAGE is a theatrical hurricane of empathy, action and truth.
Outrage is produced by Fishamble: The New Play Company, in partnership with Dublin Port Company, and Meath County Council, during St Patrick’s Festival, as part of the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media’s Decade of Centenaries programme. It was commissioned by Meath County Council Arts Office.
