Overview

“A richly absorbing and emotionally abundant play…An instant classic.” — Independent


“A mighty affair, sending stories, characters, history, politics and love skittering across the floor with the flair of a gambler rolling dice. It’s a stunning piece of writing: teeming with life; haunted by death…Butterworth takes the great family drama and makes it his own.” — Financial Times


“An astonishing, enormous, shattering eruption of a play…It left me genuinely stunned.” — Time Out London


“A rich, serious, deeply involving play about the shadows of the past and the power of silent love.” — Guardian


“It’s a tumbling and tumultuous play, one that swerves off into storytelling, song and dance, and debate, without taking its eye off the need for suspense. It’s a thriller that bursts the bounds of its genre, but never forgets what makes the form tick.” — Variety


“A serious, seriously good, grown-up play…Something special.” — The Times


“A feast of intricate storytelling, it’s absorbing, soulful and ultimately shattering.” — Evening Standard


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


Armagh, 1981. The Carney farmhouse in Northern Ireland 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.
