Sacrifice at Easter

sacrifice04 sacrifice02 sacrifice01Their largest site-specific production since 2008, Corcadorca staged Sacrifice at Easter by Pat McCabe at Elizabeth Fort on Barrack Street for the Cork Midsummer Festival in June. Written in response to the 1916 centenary, Sacrifice at Easter was a creative collaboration between director, Pat Kiernan, renowned composer, Mel Mercier, and writer Pat McCabe. Made possible by the support of Cork City Council and the Ireland 2016 office, this return to large scale site specific work was a fitting event in the year the company celebrated 25 years of making theatre in Cork.
