Cries from Casement as His Bones are Brought to Dublin is a radio play written by David Rudkin that examines the life and controversial legacy of Irish nationalist and British diplomat Roger Casement. It was first broadcast on BBC Radio in 1973.

The project began in 1966 as a commission for Rudkin to contribute to a radio series on historical rebels, and morphed into a play about Casement when he realized that the social and political climate of the country at the time bore strong parallels to that of Casement's era. [1]

ProductionEdit

The BBC broadcast of the play aired on February 4, 1973, and was produced by John Tydeman and starred Norman Rodway as Roger Casement.
