A Nuns’ Chorus, also featuring the Reading of the Irish Proclamation in East London as part of the 1916 Centenary Celebrations

DVD of A Nun’s Chorus recorded live in July 2016. A Nuns’ Chorus, written by the Director of the Irish Elderly Advice Network, Sally Mulready, is set in 1950s Ireland and follows a group of nuns from an enclosed order as they embark on an enforced holiday to Galway bay. The play explores their relationships with each other, their reasons for joining the Convent and their own personal histories. It is at times, amusing, heartfelt and incredibly moving.

Also featured on the DVD is documentary footage of a reading of the Irish Proclamation and singing of Kevin Barry, by a group of older Irish people. This special event was organised by John O’Connor and the Committee of the Irish Pensioners’ Forum of East London, in collaboration with the Irish Elderly Advice Network, as part of our joint celebrations and commemorations of 1916 in this, the centenary year. It includes interviews with the chair of the Irish Pensioners’ Forum of East London, John O’Connor, and the Director of the Irish Elderly Advice Network, Sally Mulready.
