CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
Set in nineteenth-century Ireland, the story focuses on the arrival of British Soldiers to a small Gaelic Community. Their mission is to perform an ordinance survey but the language barrier leads them to problems. Gaelic place names get replaced with English ones causing conflict and misunderstanding with the local people. Although humour and pathos are used throughout the play, it still seriously tackles a universal problem that is affecting the human condition.Performers Cian Barry (Owen), Niall Buggy (Hugh), Paul Cawley (Captain Lancey), Beth Cooke (Maire), Hannah James-Scott (Bridget), John Conroy (Jimmy Jack), Rory Murphy (Doalty), Roxanna Nic Liam (Sarah), James Northcote (Yolland), Ciaran O'Brien (Manus).
