“Vanishing. It’s a powerful word, that. A powerful word.”

Northern Ireland, 1981. The Carney farmhouse is a hive of activity with preparations for the annual harvest.  A day of hard work on the land and a traditional night of feasting and celebrations lie ahead. But this year they will be interrupted by a visitor.

“You can’t bury the past.”

Jez Butterworth‘s previous work at the Royal Court includes The River and the multi-award winning Jerusalem. Director Sam Mendes makes his Royal Court debut.
