"The macabre business of blight and death, of wakes and murder, of poisoned love and lost hope, and the scandal of an emigration policy that was in effect one of transportation...are some of the modern Irish theatre's most powerful and poetic scenes." (Observer)"A classic...Murphy's script burns through to the very soul of all of us" (Irish Independent)
