Fishamble: The New Play Company, Ireland

EMBARGO

by Deirdre Kinahan

Three souls caught up in the violent winds of change....

In September 1920, during the War of Independence, dockers and railwaymen refused to transport any armed troops, or to handle any weapons arriving from Britain. On the centenary of this act of civil resistance, Fishamble will stage a site-responsive production, in association with Dublin Port Company and Iarnród Éireann.

EMBARGO is a muddy, complicated, poetic, bloody, and heroic tale of a politically motivated industrial action, in which three characters deal with a pivotal moment during the Irish War of Independence.

These are our ghosts, their story is our story.
