Marian Sheridan and I attended A Terrible Beauty last night and we were so moved by the wrenching testimonies and impressed with the overall production. It was a worthy tribute to the men and women of 1916 who paid the price of their ideals with their lives . It was an excellent ideas to have a photo of each man while you told his story, which personalized it for the audience. It was an inspiration to have each actor leave the stage when his character was executed. Your cast did an wonderful job delivering their lines. I would’ve been in tears if I had to tell most of those stories. And you yourself did a magnificent job of reading A Terrible Beauty by Yeats. Once again, Congratulations! I am so glad that I finally had the opportunity to see it.

All of us were absolutely in awe of the stories you told last night, each responding in her or his own way to the messages from a century ago. I couldn’t help comparing the attitudes your group expressed with those we hear more usually today from what the media trains us to call rebels. All of us remarked on the idealism, the innocence, the quality of simplicity we heard – and the absence of fear. We were spellbound. Thank you for putting so much effort into creating a dramatic vehicle that would share such nobility. One can’t help but compare such loftiness, such high-mindedness, with its relative scarcity today. Or is it just that we’ve lost the eloquence?

I am so happy to have seen the moving performance Wednesday evening. I actually did not know about the agenda & thought I was attending a reading of your poetry.
The performance was wonderful.  The images of these young men on the screen while their words were read was devastating & made the tragedy really come alive. my sincere congratulations.
It would have made a wonderful documentary; I don’t think it was being filmed, but perhaps it was filmed at the earlier performance. if not you might consider approaching TVO or the national film board.
Certainly if it was appearing on the doctumentary channel I would watch it again & again.
