Sean O'Casey's classic play contrasts events in a Dublin tenement with the 1916 Rising outside the door. Nora Clitheroe tries to fashion a comfortable life for herself and her husband, despite grinding poverty, but her world falls in when she fails to stop him joining the rebel forces ranged against the British army on Easter Monday.
