Constance and Eva, 17-27 Sept

17th September 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 27th September 2017 @ 8:30 pm

ILS members will remember Dr Kimberly Campanello from her fascinating talk at the ILS last year on Sheela na gigs and the Bon Secours Mother and Baby Home in Tuam, County Galway. Campanello has a new play on those radical sisters Constance Markievicz and Eva Gore-Booth. The play runs from 17-27 September at the Bread and Roses Theatre in Clapham. While we’re not arranging a formal ILS outing this time many members will be attending the final night of the run – 27 September, you can find out more and book here.

Constance Markievicz and Eva Gore-Booth battled imperialism, fought for women’s rights, and sought to redefine gender and sexuality. They were famous – even infamous – during their lifetimes, but history has largely forgotten them. 

Can their stories be told, and what can we learn from them about how to be politically active today?

Constance and Eva is a multimedia reimagining of the lives of these two sisters, bringing together archive footage, found text and performance to tell their story. It is a first time collaboration between the poet Kimberly Campanello (Strange Country, Hymn to Kali) and director Luke Davies, and is Urania’s first production.
