Background


Created by two of Ireland's most original companies, These Rooms received unanimous critical acclaim when it was first presented in a dilapidated Dublin building in 2016 as part of the centenary commemorations of the Easter Rising.


Wholly reimagined for its London run, this riveting work sheds new light on a pivotal moment in British-Irish relations.


These Rooms is accompanied by Beyond These Rooms, an installation touring the UK in 2018.


Synopsis


On 28 April 1916, five days into the Easter Rising, 15 civilian men were killed in house-to-house raids by British soldiers on a single Dublin street.


An intense, immersive blend of theatre, dance and visual art by David Bolger, Owen Boss and Louise Lowe, and part of 14-18 NOW, the UK's arts programme for the First World War centenary, These Rooms tells two stories: those of the civilians who were victims of and witnesses to the North King Street Massacre, and those of the men of the South Staffordshire Regiment who committed this act - their identities largely anonymous, their actions controversially exonerated at a military enquiry.
