Blood Upon The Rose

Type : Theatre

Blood upon the Rose tells the tragic love story of Grace Gifford and Joseph Plunkett set against the backdrop of the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin. Their courtship, marriage and his subsequent execution are brought to the stage in this compelling new musical drama written and directed by Gerry Cunningham.

Plunkett’s marriage to Grace in a dark candle-lit chapel the night before his execution touched the hearts of a nation and inspired the Frank and Sean O’Meara’s song “Grace”.

Featuring original songs Let the Nation Rise, Be my Hope and title track Blood upon the Rose. Come and witness a unique moment in Irish history.
