WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Irish Repertory Theatre presents the American premiere of John B. Keane's The Field, a fierce and tender study of the love a man can have for land and the ruthless lengths he will go to in order to obtain the object of his desire. Bull McCabe, a farmer, has leased four acres of poor land from a widow for five years during which time he nurtured it into prime pasture. Now she wants to sell the land to the highest bidder, and Bull, having invested his time and effort, believes that he has rights to the property. When an "outsider" from England appears on the day of the auction to offer an unusually high price, Bull decides to take justice into his own hands. The Field takes spectators on a primal journey exploring powerful themes such as tradition, birthright, and obsession for land that is as potent as it is universal. Ciarán O'Reilly directs.
