Irish Rep presents a new staging of Irish master Sean O’Casey’s 1923 drama about a young poet who gets pulled into the chaos of Irish War of Independence after a rumor spreads that he is an IRA assassin. More…
It’s 1921, and the Irish War of Independence rages on the streets of Dublin as Irish revolutionaries clash with British auxiliary forces. Aspiring poet Donal Davoren tries to avoid the conflict, but when Donal learns of a rumor that he is a gunman on the run, he cannot resist the curiosity it stirs in beautiful young Minnie Powers…and he cannot escape the attention of his other neighbors. As the rumor grows, the war outside moves closer to home with tragic consequences.
"The Shadow of a Gunman" is being presented in repertory along with the other two plays of Sean O’Casey’s "Dublin Trilogy" ("Juno and the Paycock" and "The Plough and the Stars") as Irish Rep’s "O’Casey Cycle."
