The Royal Engineers have come to the Irish-speaking community of Ballybeg in Donegal to conduct an ordnance survey, mapping the landscape and changing the place-names from Irish to the King’s English. This seemingly purely administrative exercise is the trigger for an irrevocable transformation in the lives of everyone involved. Laughter abounds and love blossoms before tragedy ensues. Throughout it all Friel’s language scales impossible heights as he leaves us to ponder on how we communicate with one another, between countries, between siblings, between the generations, between the sexes, between cultures and between languages.
