Two elderly farmers, Eamon and Nashee, meet at a gate on a remote hillside. They are old rivals, old neighbours. Their conversation is of a gentler time.
But there’s nothing gentle about today’s conversation. They are forced to confront each other with some heartbreaking truths.
The Quiet Land is a celebration of the humour, resilience and endearing innocence of an older generation as it struggles to survive in the rural Ireland of today. Written by Malachy McKenna and directed by Bairbre Ni Chaoimh
Presented by Patrick Talbot Productions in association with Bewley’s Café Theatre
