Northern Ireland, 1981. The Carney farmhouse is a hive of activity with preparations for the annual harvest. A day of hard work on the land and a traditional night of feasting and celebrations lie ahead. But this year they will be interrupted by a visitor.
This “fiercely gripping play” (Ben Brantley, The New York Times) is directed by Academy and Tony Award winner Sam Mendes and premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, where it became the fastest-selling show in the theatre’s history.
