MARCH AWAY MY BROTHERS by Brendan McQuaile

Written and Performed by Brendan McQuaile

March Away My Brothers takes its title from a poem written in 1922 by George Chester Duggan. ‘The Watchers on Gallipoli’. Running for one night only, this production recounts the journey of a young lad, Lawrence Kelly, from Bridgefort Street in Dublin’s Liberties to the Christmas Truce in Flanders in 1914, and an impromptu meeting of soldiers from both sides, on a bitter cold Christmas Eve in an area known as ‘no man’s land’. Both the book and the show, written by Brendan McQuaile, highlight the importance of the role that music had to play in the lives of the troops at that time.. Many of the popular songs of the time are included... songs such as ‘It’s a long way to Tipperary’ and ’There’s a long long trail a winding’. Some modern reflections in song are also included.‘

'What a great show, we enjoyed ourselves immensely' Joe Duffy, RTE
