The Rising
The Irish Rebellion of 1916 in Song and Verse

The story of a tragic uprising by a group of Irish rebels on Easter Monday in 1916 is memorably dramatized by the Crowded Kitchen Players. Written and directed by Ara Barlieb, the story of “The Rising” is skillfully told by the small cast through newspaper articles, poetry, songs, speeches, proclamations, letters from the condemned rebels to their loved ones, and a “The New York Times” interview.

Joey Mutis III of The Electric Farm performs traditional Irish songs interspersed through the story. Mutis’ plaintive voice lends a haunting quality to the traditional music on which he accompanies himself on guitar, as well as occasionally singing a cappella to additional effect.
