Betrothed

One of the most remarkable love stories in Irish history

Set against the backdrop of the 1803 Irish Rebellion, Betrothed tells the tale of one of the most remarkable love stories in Irish history.

Whilst the dynamic Emmet was rallying his forces to strike a blow against the English, a remarkable young woman, Sarah Curran was anxiously waiting his safe return. Having secretly agreed to marry once the rebellion was safely out of the way, the young couple’s plans were dashed when Emmet was arrested, tried and hanged, drawn and quartered.

Sarah’s story takes a further unexpected turn when she chooses to marry an officer in the British Army. Caught between two worlds, can she ever forget the promises of her past? Betrothed is the last play from North Belfast writer, the late Kate Muldoon.

Cast includes: Shaun Blaney, Sarah Lyle, Maria Connolly, Katie Tumelty,  Mary O’ Loan and Louise Parker. Directed by Matthew McElhinney (A Night In November) and produced by Briege Lynch (The Miami Showband Story).
