Ticketmaster Summer in Stages

Translations

Author(s): Brian Friel
Company: Lyric Theatre and Abbey Theatre

It’s August 1833. The pupils have gathered in a hedge-school in the townland of Baile Beag / Ballybeg. This Irish-speaking community in Donegal, has become the unlikely focal point for a changing world.

Progress is coming. Tensions are growing. There are plans for a new English-speaking national school and a group of Royal Engineers have arrived to map the area.

Translations examines the fractious relationship between people and nations through the lens of language and (mis)communication.
