A classic of Irish political theatre, Pull Down a Horseman was written for the 50th Anniversary of the Rising in 1966. Based on actual events, Eugene McCabe's play depicts a secret meeting between Connolly, Pearse and other revolutionary leaders held to take that momentous leap. Although just 40 minutes long, the play is packed with historical detail as their arguments and ideas are pitched against each other. Performed by the Clones Drama Society, featuring Brian O'Harte and James Cleary.
