A rousing standing ovation acknowledged the world premiere of Neil Pearson’s adaptation of Guerrilla Days in Ireland by Tom Barry at the Everyman Palace. Since the success of Bryan Flynn’s Michael Collins The Musical, there has been a renewed interest in this drama and in the history of Ireland’s struggle for freedom and independence. Tom Barry’s story tells with some passion and belief his early involvement with the British Army in Mesopotamia where he learned about the 1916 Rising.
