Other Information Seán O'Casey's play, The Silver Tassie was Seán O'Casey's passionate but critical commentary on imperialist wars. The play portrays not only the upheaval of the First World War and the human suffering endured on the Western Front but also the cruelties of daily life in the slums of inner-city Dublin. The Silver Tassie was a major undertaking for the Everyman company in terms of casting, staging, costumes, music, sound and research. It played for three weeks at the Everyman Playhouse from 30 August to 18 September.
