Fishamble: The New Play Company presents ‘The Treaty’ by Colin Murphy
Directed by Conall Morrison, Hosted at the Embassy of Ireland
One hundred years ago, five Irish plenipotentiaries, accompanied by a large delegation of men and women, arrived in London to begin the negotiations that concluded with the signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty, a landmark moment in British and Irish history that led to the establishment of the Irish State.
From 2nd to 4th December, renowned Irish theatre company, Fishamble, will bring an exciting new work from playwright Colin Murphy, The Treaty, to the Irish Embassy in London and tell the story of what happened inside the negotiations as Arthur Griffith, Michael Collins and the Irish delegation sat across from a formidable British negotiating team headed by David Lloyd George.
The Treaty was co-commissioned by Fishamble and Pavilion Theatre. This production is part of the Embassy of Ireland’s programme to mark the centenary of the Anglo-Irish Treaty Centenary with support from Culture Ireland, the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, the Department of Foreign Affairs, and the British Irish Chamber of Commerce.
