In this series we look at the influence which the 1913 lockout had on a number of artistic disciplines.
In this episode, Dr. Margarita Cappock tells us about some of the painters involved in the lockout. We hear from Joe Mooney who tells us about Sean O Caseys connection with East Wall. Dr. Paul Delaney explores “Strumpet City” and both Paul and NearFMs Michael Sharp discuss the effect the lockout had on these writers works.
We also hear excerpts from both “The Plough and the Stars” (performed by the Near Drama Company) and “Strumpet City”.
