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).
