A Skull in Connemara archiveFor one week each autumn, Mick Dowd is hired to disinter the bones in certain sections of his local cemetery, to make way for the new arrivals. As the time approaches for him to dig up those of his own late wife, strange rumours regarding his involvement in her sudden death seven years ago gradually begin to resurface. First presented as a Druid Theatre Company and Royal Court Theatre co-production in 1997.
