Edward and Eliza and the Smashing of the Van

written by Eileen Murphy, directed by Chris Honer

The year is 1867. Edward Brett and his Irish wife, Eliza are struggling to make a living from their
small shop. Edward’s brother, a popular policeman, is shot dead during the rescue of two Irish
Republican prisoners in Manchester. A huge upsurge of anti-Irish feeling sweeps the country and
three Irishmen are publicly hanged. Edward and Eliza struggle to cope with their personal loss,
their loyalty to each other and their different cultural backgrounds. Written to coincide with the
150th anniversary of real events, the play explores dilemmas that are still very relevant today.
