The brilliant new musical/drama Blood Upon The Rose written and directed by Gerry Cunningham is set for a much awaited appearance in Belfast Waterfront. It tells the tragic love story of Grace Gifford and Joseph Plunkett set against the background of the Easter Rising in Dublin 1916. Their courtship, marriage in jail and his execution the following morning are brought to life in this compelling and absorbing musical/drama.
Plunkett's marriage to Grace in a dark candle‑lit chapel the night before his execution touched the hearts of a nation coming to terms with the aftermath of this momentous event in Irish history.
The haunting Blood upon the Rose sets the tone for this enthralling musical/drama.
The original script and music are the culmination of a year's work by Gerry and though this is his first venture into writing, he does possess a wealth of experience when it comes to music and drama.
This is a show well worth seeing. An enthusiastic talented cast from the River Tall Theatre Company bring this story to life. Sit back and enjoy!
