The Clearing archiveIn a small Irish community Robert Preston, an English Protestant landowner, marries Madelaine, a fiery down to earth Irish Catholic. Against the epic backdrop of Oliver Cromwell's ruthless colonisation of Ireland, they celebrate the birth of their son, a symbol of hope for the future. As Cromwell's ruthless colonisation of Ireland, they celebrate the birth of their son, a symbol of hope for the future. As Cromwell's men close in, their passionate love for each other is torn in different directions as Robert is forced to choose between exile, and pledging his allegiance to the English. Helen Edmundson's award-winning play is an absorbing experience, with a tremendous modern resonance, which explores our sense of national identity, our humanity and how history weighs upon us all.
