Masquerader's Fall Play
The Masqueraders Present:
Brian Friel's Translations
Friel is Ireland's greatest living playwright, and many critics claim that Translations is his finest play. Set in Baile Beag, an Irish-speaking town in 1833, the play examines the confrontations between local community members and officers of the British Royal Engineers, who arrive to map County Donegal and Anglicize its place names.
"Translations is a modern classic. It engages the intellect as well as the heart, and achieves a profound political and philosophical resonance through the detailed examinations of individual lives. . . " Daily Telegraph
