The Treaty, by Colin Murphy
Directed by Conall Morrison, Produced by Eva Scanlan
Fishamble's The Treaty is an intense historical, political drama focusing on the delegation and negotiations of the Anglo-Irish Treaty.
One hundred years ago, a small group of untested politicians left Dublin for London, to negotiate for Irish independence with one of the most formidable delegations ever put together. The Irish were seeking to take back control; the British believed they were stronger together. And overseeing it all was a prime minister nobody trusted, notorious for his wizardry. The Treaty is a history play for this moment.
“A remarkable piece of political drama” - Michael Billington, The Guardian
