  • Synopsis

    The British Army have just arrived in an Irish speaking land with the purpose of mapping the area. The dramatic action unfolds in a quick and quiet way but to great effect. The play focuses on the potential erosion of Irish culture along with the eradication of the Gaelic Language and Irish place names, by British troops. The moving union between an Irish speaking country girl and a British soldier proves that love only knows one language.
