The Poets Rebellion takes you to Dublin where a couple, tourists from America stop into the local pub, excited and enthusiastic about their day exploring the city. The bartender adds his thoughts, to theirs, on the events of the 1916 Uprising. Another patron, joins in, wanting his opposing views to be heard. The two men begin one-upping each other. Others coming into the pub dismiss the argument as “more of the same”. It becomes apparent that only those who were involved in the Uprising could speak to facts. Or could they?

Admission for the Poet’s Rebellion is $15.00.
