Details of a new Anu production has just been announced. It is a piece that aims to ‘explore the untold Irish experiences of World War 1’ and will run at Collins Barracks from the 3rd February to the 30th April 2015. Tickets are a snip at €5, so I’d imagine it’ll sell out quickly! Not to be missed…

1915, Gallipoli. Amidst the heat and smell of the trenches, with No Man’s Land on the horizon, the men of the 7th Battalion of the Royal Irish Fusiliers stand shoulder to shoulder.
At home, thousands of Irish women lend their support by taking up employment in munitions factories, supplying much-needed materials for the manufacture of bandages and other medical equipment, or preparing packages for soldiers in prisoner of war camps.
Award-winning innovators ANU Productions present an immersive World War I experience, based on the events surrounding the campaign at Gallipoli in Turkey and inspired by the previously untold stories of the 7th Battalion of the Royal Irish Fusiliers – and the everyday lives of the Irish people who were affected by the Great War.
