WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A New York premiere written by Tony- and Olivier Award-winning playwright Brian Friel!

In the hot Donegal August of 1878, the fruits of colonialism and the ambiguities of loyalty are tested within the background of impossible love. Christopher Gore, the liberal-minded Anglo-Irish landlord and his son, David, reside at the Lodge with their "chatelaine" Margaret, with whom they are both in love. Christopher's cousin, Dr. Richard Gore, arrives with the intention of pursuing a Darwin-inspired scientific theory: By measuring the craniums of the indigenous Irish, he hopes to crack the genetic code of the indigenes…demonstrating their inferior place in the natural order. Set in the era of the rumblings of violence and uncertainty at the dawn of the Home Rule movement, Brian Friel explores the aftermath of Dr. Gore's experiment as deep animosity is dangerously ignited among the suspicious villagers of Ballybeg.
