Inspired by archive reports and eyewitness testimonies, a new play by Kieran Kelly that looks at the events of the ‘decade of change’ from a Donegal perspective.
Set in Letterkenny between the years 1914-1924, it tells the fictionalised account of one man Brendan McDevitt, questioning what made him pick up a gun to fight for his country and how he was affected by the seismic events unfolding around him – from World War 1, through the War of Independence and up to the Civil War, and shows how these events convinced him to move from the peaceful Nationalism of the Ancient Order of Hibernians into the more militant Republicanism of Sinn Féin. This life altering decision will have far reaching implications for both himself and his family.
First performed in the theatre as a rehearsed reading in 2016, this updated version will tour the National Drama Festival Circuit for the LMDG.
