Laois Youth Theatre presents ‘Cherish’

Laois Youth Theatre, as part of the county’s Centenary Commemoration Programme, presents CHERISH, a performance tribute to the short lives of the children who perished during Easter week 1916.

Getting ready for another season of quality drama!

Getting ready for another season of quality drama!

The youth theatre takes a re-imagined glance back to catch the whispered echoes of these young lives that were so violently lost. Forty young girls and boys, aged 16 and under, whose lives and deaths, until recently, went unrecognised, whose bodies were largely buried in unmarked graves. Forty young children whose dreams and aspirations, whose august destinies, were squandered in the newly-declared Republic.

Laois Drama going from strength to strength!

Laois Youth Drama Update!

CHERISH is a physical theatre piece that takes its inspiration from Joe Duffy’s book – “Children of the Rising” and has been devised by the youth theatre during a two-week long drama workshop. The outdoor performance of CHERISH, directed by Siobhán Coffey, will take place on Friday 29th July at 5pm in Fitzmaurice Place.
