Actors Cara Seymour, Joe Sikora, and James Russell recently posed outside The Irish Repertory Theatre where they are set to costar in Brian Friel's THE FREEDOM OF THE CITY, as part of the Off-Broadway company's 25th Anniversary Season. Check out phtoos of the cast below!
Set in Derry, Northern Ireland during the aftermath of a civil rights meeting, Friel's THE FREEDOM OF THE CITY revolves around an inquiry into the shooting by British soldiers of three marchers (portrayed by Seymour, Sikora, and Russell) as they emerged from the Guildhall. As the inquiry continues, with testimony from 'expert' witnesses, the play relives the real events that led to its institution.
