About this event

What does it mean to be Irish? Or, what does it mean to become Irish? These are the questions that this rehearsed reading of Hic et Ubique will explore in this collaborative theatrical research project.

By tapping into the rich history of famous Dublin locations, such as St Stephen’s Green and Moore Street, and by using Richard Head’s 1663 bawdy comedy Hic et Ubique, it will explore the serious and not-so-serious issues surrounding contemporary life in Dublin today, and the many different ways we construct what it means to be “Irish”.

Hic et Ubique, the first play written in Ireland, by a person from Ireland, to depict everyday life in Ireland (though not one we might recognise!) will be reconceptualised in the Smock Alley Theatre from March 29-30 by Maynooth University’s Drama Society and PhD researcher, Alan Waldron.

This performance is funded by the Irish Research Council as a part of Maynooth University’s MACMORRIS Project.
