BODEN THEATRE Group have been hard at work over the long winter nights in rehearsal for their new production A Terrible Beauty is Born which commemorates 1916. The title of the play is of course inspired by W.B. Yeats’ iconic poem Easter 1916.

The group have enjoyed their rehearsals and have created a unique three-act play using small excerpts from plays based on The Rising, as well as original material written by some of the group’s actors.


The Boden Theatre Group say they are truly excited to be part of Ballyboden’s 100th Centenary Programme and believe their contribution will bring to life the real sense of turmoil and tragedy experienced, not only by the volunteers and signatories, but the ordinary people who were alive in 1916.

The play will be interspersed with song, poetry and music by club members, which will bring great energy to the production and give an insight into our cultural past during one of the most difficult times in our history.

The show runs from Thursday, April 14 to Saturday, April 16 at 8pm. For ticket reservations and enquiries Contact: Ger: 086 8516387 or Carol: 086 4070015.
