Translations Biography

Following a sold-out run in 2018, Ian Rickson’s exquisite production of Brian Friel's masterpiece returns.

Ciarán Hinds (Game of Thrones, Girl 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 Gaelic names with English. It is an administrative act with radical consequences.

Brian Friel’s modern classic is a powerful account of nationhood, which sees the turbulent relationship between England and Ireland play out in one quiet community.
