Produced by Loosehorse Television and Treasure Entertainment for TV3, Trial of the Century is an imagined, alternative history which grants Pádraig Pearse the trial he never received in life. The hypothetical trial serves as a device to examine the many arguments that have been made for and against the rising over the last 100 years and also the many differing and contradictory things that have been said about Pearse over the last century. Pearse (played by Tom Vaughan-Lawlor) must defend the actions that changed the course of Irish history.
“Trial of the Century is ambitious, intelligent and provocative.” – Daragh McManus: Irish Independent
