"What more can we want than that? No man at all can be living forever, and we must be satisfied."
THISTLE AND SALT is a performance of 2 one-act plays by Irish playwright and essayist, John Millington Synge. Sometimes described as "poetic realism," Synge wrote about the reality of the Ireland that he knew, not a romanticized one.
Riders To The Sea takes place in The Aran Islands, off the west coast of Ireland. It is a place of hard living. Mauyra, who has lost her husband and five sons to working the sea, is waiting for news about another son, Michael, who is now also missing. All this occurs as her youngest son Bartley, the last one left, prepares to take his place as the family breadwinner in the only way he knows how.
In The Shadow of the Glen is a tragic-comedy that takes place in the dark hollows of County Wicklow, Ireland. A storm rages late one evening and a rain-soaked stranger seeks shelter in a lonely farm cottage. He is welcomed by the beautiful woman of the house, only to find much more than he bargained for.
