Getting to Here

Getting to Here – A new play written and directed for the ITG by Lisa Ní Laoire

The play looks back, from very personal perspectives, at some of the key themes in Ireland over the past 100 years since Easter 1916.

The play casts both a cold and tender eye on Ireland – or more accurately, lends an ear – to the histories and herstories of how the country got to here.

Recordings of documented interviews are used to recount personal tales which – taken together – unveil something truthful about the short but poignant history of the Irish Republic, proclaimed a century ago.

With storytelling, audio-visuals and theatre, Getting to Here explores and preserves some of the more notable transitions in Irish history.
