ALLEGIANCE by Mary Kenny is an imaginative reconstruction of a meeting between Winston Churchill, and Michael Collins in the Autumn of 1921 at a crucial time in Anglo-Irish negotiations which had come to an uncomfortable impasse. Collins meets Churchill to continue negotiating the Anglo-Irish Treaty and try to find a way forward. The two men drink, talk, argue, and wrestle with one of the most difficult moments in Irish history.

Our presentation is part of the centenary observation of the signing of the Anglo-Irish Treaty, which formed the Irish Free State on December 6, 1922.
