Tales of Ballycumber

Faber & Faber, 3 de dez. de 2009 - 64 páginas

Here, now, listen, I'll tell you a tale . . .
Daffodils are in bloom as dawn breaks over the foothills of Ballycumber, ushering in hope for a new day and stirring the ghosts of a past fraught with sorrow, anguish and emptiness.
In search of advice, young Evans Stafford calls at the home of friend and strong-minded traditionalist, Nicholas Farquhar. The following day, as Farquhar learns the devastating consequences of this meeting, he discovers that his memories and words are governed by a buried history; a force far greater than himself.
Sebastian Barry's Tales of Ballycumber premiered at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, in September 2009.
