“A man’s character is the only Kingdom he should
seek to conquer”
This is a piece of solo theatre that brings its audience
through thirty years of one man’s history – Humanitarian,
Revolutionary, Campaigner, Whistle-blower and Spy; Sir
Roger Casement. It stretches from the height of the British
Colonial Empire to the chaos of the First World War. From
sailing up the Congo river and uncovering the atrocities
within, to siding with Germany on the eve of the Great War
and raising a revolutionary army to fight for its
independence and his native Ireland’s. After being
knighted for his work on behalf of the British Empire he
was then slandered, tried and hung by the very same
government…
After the performance this workshop will include a
discussion on how the themes raised in this historical
piece present themselves in today’s world, and on the role
of the individual in making change.
How can we bring peace to our world when we are at war
with ourselves?
