CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)


Translations archiveSet 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 Ciaran Hinds (Hugh), Seamus O'Hara, Dermot Crowley, Fra Fee, Judith Roddy, Rufus Wright, Jack Bardoe, Liadan Dunlea, Amy Molloy, Julian Moore-Cook.
Author Brian Friel. Producer National Theatre. Director Ian Rickson. Design Rae Smith. Lighting Neil Austin. Music Stephen Warbeck. Sound Ian Dickinson (for Autograph). Director Anna Morrissey (movement director).
