Edward and Eliza

and the Smashing of the Van

The year is 1867. Edward Brett and his Irish wife, Eliza are struggling to make a living from their small shop. Edward’s brother, a popular policeman, is shot dead during the rescue of two Irish Republican prisoners in Manchester. A huge upsurge of anti-Irish feeling sweeps the country and three Irishmen are publicly hanged.

Written to coincide with the 150th anniversary of real events, the play explores dilemmas that are still very relevant today.
