Description

Cultures simultaneously clash and find common ground in this new work by Irish playwright and actor Donal O'Kelly. The Stage produces the world-premier of The Memory Stick, which examines the 1916 Easter Rising--which saw Irish republicans fighting for independence from the British--and contrasts the rebellion with similar insurgent efforts made by American Indians. The story is told through the eyes of two main characters: Bridget, a young Chicagoan of Irish heritage, and a fellow American of Sioux ancestry who meet on an army base in Kandahar, Afghanistan. Tensions rise as they discover each others' secrets and one is suspected of whistleblowing. (VS)
