“He shall not hear the bittern cry In the wild sky where he is lain”

A call to arms, War Poet Francis Ledwidge (Ethan Dillon) is torn between his love for Shivvie (Katie O'Kelly) his friend and confidante and Ellie (Amy O'Dwyer). In spite of their fears he enlists in Captain Dunsany's (Ian Meehan) regiment and is dispatched to Suvla Bay.

Excelling as a sniper, Ledwidge distinguishes himself at Gallipoli but the poet remains conflicted. Gerard Humphreys' play explores the poet's personal struggles with war and his early life as a trade union activist in a class ridden society on the eve of revolution. LEDWIDGE presents its subject in the context of his art and politics, bringing to life the adventurous spirit of Ireland's greatest war poet.

This production will celebrate one hundred years since Francis Ledwidge's death and 20 years presenting new writing by The New Theatre.
