Northern Star, one of the plays included in Stewart Parker’s “Three Plays for Ireland” is based on Henry Joy McCracken struggling to compose his final speech to the people of Belfast after the failure of the rebellion/rising. Henry Joy incorporates the seven ages of man into his speech and uses the words from great Irish playwrights including Beckett, O’Casey, Wilde and Synge to emphasise and make accessible the missed opportunities, horrors and failures of Irish history.
