Published by Nick Hern Books

Winner of the John Whiting Award

In the 17th century Cromwell moved English troops into a war-weary Ireland forcing the local inhabitants onto barren land as the English gentry took over their homes

The cruelty of this racial persecution is brought into sharp focus through the tragic love of an Englishman for a local Irish woman

'A finely written play, full of sharp observation' ~ Independent on Sunday

'Does for 17th-century Anglo-Irish history what Arthur Miller did for 17th-century New England history' ~ Sunday Times
