Staged Reading Series: Translations by Brian Friel

Friday, Mar 24 & Saturday, Mar 25, 20:00

Set in a small Irish town in the summer of 1833. Hugh O’Donnell is the headmaster of a hedge school, a rural school that teaches basic education to farm families. Hugh insists on teaching in Irish, even though he knows that the language will inevitably change to English. In examining the effects of this operation on the lives of a small group, Brian Friel skilfully reveals the far-reaching personal and cultural effects of an action which is at first sight purely administrative. Friel’s play demonstrates the relationship between language and culture and the ways we choose to ignore or break down our cultural barriers.
