The Assassination of Brian Boru

Two brothers of conflicting ideals sail to Ireland to defeat the High King Brian Boru. Brodir and Ospak are respected warriors who have fought side by side in many battles.

Birr Theatre & Arts Centre

24th April 2015 at 8:00 pm

On their journey to Ireland they are plagued by omens, which tell Ospak that they find themselves on the wrong side, but Brodir is dogged in his hunger for victory and power. Ospak deserts his brother to convert to Christianity and fight on the side of the good King. The brothers meet on the battlefield after Boru is killed, and in the bloodthirsty mess of the fight even the clarity of death is shaken.
