Play for Tomorrow: Easter 2016

on BBC One London

by Graham Reid
Set in 2016, prior to the centenary of the Easter Rising in Dublin. the play takes place in Northern Ireland's one and only integrated teacher training college. As Easter approaches, a struggle develops between Cyril Brown (Principal of the college) and Lennie North (Security Director), whose belief it is that security as a means of prevention is more effective than the education of the individual.
