Following a sold-out run in 2018, Ian Rickson’s exquisite production of Brian Friel's masterpiece returns. Ciarán Hinds (Game of ThronesGirl from the North Country) reprises his critically acclaimed role of patriarch and schoolmaster, Hugh, whose livelihood and culture are at risk.

Owen, the prodigal son, returns to rural Donegal from Dublin. With him are two British army officers. Their ambition is to create a map of the area, replacing the Irish names with English. It is an administrative act with radical consequences.
