Love In The Harbour
First World War flying drama amid Anglo-Irish tension: romance, laughter, music - and tragedy - based on historical archive documents.
This new play by Eddie Alford starts in the Grand Canal Hotel in Shannon Harbour, Ireland, almost exactly a hundred years ago. The Irish Revolution for independence from Britain is coming to the boil. Alongside it, there's trench warfare against the Kaiser's troops in the final years of World War I. George, a central character, is fighting in both. But, as a Lieutenant in the (Royal) Irish Regiment, he is in a three cornered battle. Many Irish people fighting for a republic see him as a traitor.
