About this show

The year is 1833, and change is coming to rural County Donegal: While a hodgepodge group gather at an Irish-language hedge school to study classics of Greek and Latin literature, British army engineers arrive to map the country, draw new borders, and translate local place names into the King's English. Languages and histories collide, kindling romance and inciting violence. A modern classic from lauded Irish playwright Brian Friel, Translations reminds audiences how personal the political can be.
