 English Touring Theatre, Rose Theatre Kingston & Sheffield Theatres present Translations

 1833. Rural Ireland. The British Army arrives to translate Gaelic place names into the King’s English. Farm-girl Máire finds herself torn between the affections of the local school teacher and the love of a British soldier, between her native tongue and a new language, between the comfort of the world she knows and the excitement of foreign possibilities.

 The resulting clash of two worlds threatens the very heart of the community as they struggle to interpret a new language and each other. What gets lost in translation?

 ‘A gripping and vibrant production of a hauntingly beautiful play.’ – Whats On Stage

  ‘A piece of work that is stunning to watch with a cast that absolutely nails the depths of this brutal and brilliant script.’ – Yorkshire Post

 ‘An exemplary revival of what may be Brian Friel’s greatest play’ – The Guardian

 ‘Brian Friel’s rich, lyrical, and particular and yet epic play is a portrait of a culture and a history under threat of obliteration… James Grieve’s superbly eloquent, magnificently performed revival… a flawless production which confirms the play’s status as a modern masterpiece.’ – Mail on Sunday

‘James Grieve’s pitch-perfect revival of Translations… a modern masterpiece in which complex ideas and feelings flow in unison… An evening that combines clever paradox with warmth, ingenious artifice with atmospheric authenticity, the remote past with the here-and-now. To speak plain: go.’ – The Telegraph
