New play explores Ireland's place in modern world

A new London play, performed in Clerkenwell, examines Ireland's role within the modern day world.


After 30 years of war, followed by 20 years of the Good Friday Peace Agreement, playwright Seamus Finnegan asks where the nation is at today.


Starring Euan Macnaughton and Saria Steel, 'I Am Of Ireland' weaves together a number of stories, exploring everything between the loss of faith, its role within Europe and the row over the border.


The production takes place at the Old Red Lion Theatre in Clerkenwell from Tuesday 5th June to Saturday 30th June.
