Public lecture: “Shakespeare, O’Casey and ‘the Nature of an Insurrection’”

To commemorate Shakespeare 400 and as part of the ‘Shakespeare and Easter Rising’ programme of events taking place around Ireland, University College Cork’s School of English is delighted to host a public lecture on “Shakespeare, O’Casey and ‘the Nature of an Insurrection’”. This lecture by Dr Ger Fitzgibbon will examine the influence and role of Shakespeare in the drama of O’Casey and in the wider cultural landscape of Ireland during the Rising and the War of Independence.

The lecture will take place on Tuesday 26 April, at 6pm, in the Council Room on the Quad, UCC, and all are welcome to attend.

UCC’s School of English will host a range of Shakespeare 400 events this year and details will be announced in due course.
