Observe The son Of Ulster


Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme explores the bonds that unite a disparate group of men as they prepare to fight and die in the trenches during the battle of the Somme in 1914.

A compelling portrait of a group of men divided by religion, politics and class but united in their common belief in God and country, McGuinness' play at once celebrates their willingness to fight and die to preserve a way of life while offering a timely critique of the futility of war.
