November 15-19 – Brian Merriman’s Eirebrushed

eirebrushedcastlockupWritten and directed by Brian Merriman

Featuring Maria Blaney, Flo McSweeney, John Kelly and Stephen Gorman.

“Can a flawed person be a hero?”

In the week the US will elect a new President, Eirebrushed is a timely reflection on the principles of democratic inclusiveness, equal opportunity and the reality of republican ideals, by those inspired to combat oppression and exclusion in 1916.

The four revolutionaries return 100 years after the 1916 rising to tell the hidden stories of the lives of some of the heroes who would not ‘fit’ the vision of the new ‘Republic of equals’ that was promised in the glorious revolution.

Full of humour, pathos and actual testimony, Eirebrushed seeks to challenge the conventional Irish Republican stereotype to set out the contribution of lesbian and gay people at a time of struggle to overcome oppression in Ireland. The play records their words used in inspirational poetry and speeches as they struggled to create a society where, as the Proclamation promised “no minority would be subject to the will of the majority.”

When: November 15-19, 2016 at 7PM

Where: Downtown Art – 70 East 4th Street, New York, NY
