- The Silver Tassie [play]
Wartime-drama written by the Irish playwright, Sean O'Casey in 1927.
The story concerns two working-class footballing Dubliners who get posted in the French battlefields.
"Ireland, World War One. Dashing Harry Heegan leads his football team to victory, arriving home in swaggering celebration before he grabs his kit and heads for the trenches. A nightmare world awaits. The men, reduced to cannon-fodder, speak in mangled incantations as the casualties stack up. Months later, Harry returns, a cripple at the football club party. Everyone but the shattered war veterans dances and forgets."
