Retail pak The "Children of Erin" Theatre Company 2002
Brian Gordon Sinclair wrote, produced, and performed this eye-witness account of the 1916 Dublin uprising, as viewed by Patrick Pearse, an insurgent executed by the British for his role in the fighting. Originally a stage piece, the story has been thoroughly reworked for audio, with a discrete and canny use of sound effects, music, and ancillary voices. His own voice is exciting, his delivery dramatic and measured. His is an exciting and moving interpretation of Irish history, not without humor and, above all, immensely human. Y.R.
