“I don’t like to see my country insulted by indecent plays.”
—The Old Lady Says “NO!” by Denis Johnston (1929)
Neither did the Abbey Theatre’s Lady Gregory, who rejected this raucous carnival of a play. With language lubricious and action outrageous, Johnston’s play is a searing look at Ireland’s relationship with revolutionary violence. But then, Denis Johnston wrote “Life itself is violent.”
Join the cast for a guided excursion through Johnston’s fantastical drama. With Singing! And Musical Interludes.
And . . . a Swift Trip to Swift’s After.
