Mamó - A Story of Geraldine Plunkett Dillon written and performed by Isolde Ó Brolcháin Carmody will perform in The Glens Centre this Friday night, September 23.
This unique play will be screened on film, followed by a live Q & A with the writer/actor Isolde Ó Brolcháin Carmodyat 8.30pm.
This one-woman show centres around the events of Easter 1916. It brings a woman’s voice to the story of Ireland before and after the Rising, from stories of childhood in the 1890s to a young married woman struggling to keep her family safe and well in an atmosphere of revolution and retribution.
This project was developed with support from The Glens Centre and The Dock, with a superbly talented crew, directed by Donal O’Kelly, filmed by Róisín Loughrey, sound by Ray Duffy.
Drawing on first-hand eye-witness accounts of the events of Easter Week, 1916, in Dublin, It speaks to the importance of telling and sharing stories of personal experience, and how these contribute to and diverge from historical narrative.
This play gives a unique insight into the experiences and events surrounding the Plunketts, a family that was centrally involved in the struggle for Irish independence and the establishment of a free and equal society in Ireland.
