The play is set in a Donegal village in 19th century agricultural Ireland and deals with issues including language, communication and Irish history. It tells the story of a prodigal son returning to the village from Dublin with two army officers. The show features designs from Rae Smith, lighting from Neil Austin and music from Stephen Warbeck.
