Strike - Tracy Ryan

Hi all, in case any of you missed this play the first time around, it is well worth seeing. 

Written and directed  by Tracy Ryan, it is based on the story of 11 Dublin strikers who changed world history.

See Below:

STRIKE! the play is back by popular demand at the Samuael Beckett Theatre 26th October  - 6th November 2010.

What the audience said about STRIKE!:


“Brilliant show. Very emotional.”

            “It was a terrific production. Brought back many memories and was truly inspirational.”

“Great show, saw it last night! A well deserved standing ovation!”

In Dublin in 1984, the economy was failing, unemployment was rife and 10 young women and one young man were about to change the world.  In July a shop worker on Henry Street refused to sell South African fruit to a store customer and was suspended. Ten colleagues followed her out on strike; they thought it would last 2 weeks - it went on for nearly three years.

The play uses visuals and music of the time to tell the story of a group of young people who went on strike to protest against apartheid and confronted the establishment, caused a state of emergency in South Africa and eventually saw the banning of South African produce in Ireland. 

The cast of STRIKE! includes ex - students from UCD's MA Drama and Performance so please support us!

Come and join us - we look forward to seeing you at STRIKE!
