Writer of the award-winning These Halcyon Days (IAC 2013), Moment, and Bogboy (IAC 2011), Deirdre Kinahan returns to Irish Arts Center with a new play that explores the energy and complexity of events in Ireland leading up to Easter 1916.

A blighted love story between three young friends from County Meath, Wild Sky charts how the Rising impacted a generation through the small cultural, national, and sporting movements that flourished in Ireland at the turn of the twentieth century.
