To mark the Centenary of the Easter Rising we host a rehearsed reading of this new theatre piece – Margaret Skinnider: Rebel Heart - inspired by the revolutionary and trade union leader Margaret Skinnider. Wounded fighting during the Easter Rising, Skinnider was an excellent markswoman and close friend of Constance Markiewicz; she was an active suffragette and went on to become the President of the Irish teachers’ union, whilst battling the authorities for decades to secure her war pension – denied to her as a woman. This powerful, moving drama is the fruition of six years of research and a major part of the efforts to achieve the rightful place in history for the Coatbridge born Margaret Skinnider.
Written by Cat Hepburn, originated by Maggie Chetty. With Clare Gray, Julie Hale and Erin McCardie.
