About this event
Cost £10-£12
A new play by Kimberly Campanello about two sisters who abandoned their privileged upbringing in Ireland to become political radicals. Constance Markievicz and Eva Gore-Booth battled imperialism, fought for women's rights, and sought to redefine gender and sexuality. They were famous - even infamous - during their lifetimes, but history has largely forgotten them.

How can their stories be told, and what can we learn from them about how to be politically active today?

Constance and Eva is a multimedia reimagining of the lives of these two sisters, bringing together archive footage, found text and performance to tell their story. It is a first time collaboration between the poet Kimberly Campanello (Strange Country, Hymn to Kali) and director Luke Davies (Chemsex Monologues, HIV Monologues), and is Urania's first production.

Praise for director Luke Davies' most recent production, The Chemsex Monologues (King's Head Theatre and Adelaide Fringe, 2017): ★★★★★ - Plays to See, What's on in Adelaide, Gay Times, London Theatre 1, Act Drop, Tezza's Theatre Place & ★★★★ - West End Wilma, British Theatre, Islington Gazette, London Pub Theatres
