The Silver Tassie

September 10, 1969 | The Royal Shakespeare Company
Directed by: David Jones | Literature: Sean O'Casey | Production Design: Timothy O'Brien
Dublin amidst the First World War. With a silver victory cup in hand and a bright future ahead of him, football player Harry Heegan (Richard Moore) has been surrounded by a joyous circle of people. But after heading off to battle, his life changes completely. Harry should have been able to choose a life full of hope, as he progressively becomes a victim of war. At the same time interweaving the drama of heartrending romance, the play draws contrast between the extreme conditions on the battlefield, and the mundanity of everyday life in Dublin.
