Origin Theatre Company returns to Glucksman Ireland House NYU for the twelfth annual reading series with works by contemporary European playwrights.

On Monday, May 30th, Origin presents Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye by Jim Nolan, directed by Tim Ruddy. Johnny I Hardly Knew Ye is a topical and provocative contribution to the Easter Rising Centenary Commemoration.

Set in a provincial newspaper office in the Irish Midlands in the run up to Easter 2016, the privately owned Inishshannon Chronicle has just been acquired by a media conglomerate and the new brush is about to sweep clean. As the newspaper’s staff  adjust to radical changes in its structure and ethos, the town it serves prepares to celebrate a tenuous connection to the Easter Rising. The revelation that this connection is not quite what it seems puts the Chronicle‘s editor on a collision course with both his new bosses and the local business and political community.
