MAEVE O'SULLIVAN will be appearing in The Easter Rising and Thereafter at the Jermyn Street Theatre from 26 to 30 April. The show, timed to coincide with the centenary of the Easter Rising in Ireland, will be part drama, part revue, part session. Incorporating poems, songs and speeches by W.B. Yeats, Dominic Behan, James Mangan, Louis MacNeice, Walter Savage Landor, Roger Casement, Winston Churchill, Sean O'Casey and others, it reveals the contrasting takes of the Easter Rising, the War of Independence, the Civil War and their legacies for Britain and Ireland.
MAEVE O'SULLIVAN is now in rehearsals for The Pitmen Painters at Oldham Coliseum, her second show at the theatre following 2014's Close The Coalhouse Door which earned her a Best Newcomer nomination at the Manchester Theatre Awards. She will again be directed by Kevin Shaw in the production which runs from 5 to 27 February.
MAEVE O'SULLIVAN can be seen at the Project Arts Centre in Dublin this week reprising her role in Sunday's Child Theatre Company's play Overshadowed, which was first seen at the 2015 Dublin Fringe Festival. The play will also run at Theatre 503 from 11 to 16 January.
Congratulations to MAEVE O'SULLIVAN who has been nominated for Best Newcomer in the Manchester Theatre Awards for her work in Close the Coalhouse Door at Oldham Coliseum. The awards ceremony will be held on 13 March.
