Translations - Melbourne Theatre Company 1982

by Brian Friel


Translations is a three-act play by Irish playwright Brian Friel, written in 1980. It is set in Baile Beag (Ballybeg), a Donegal village in 19th century Ireland. Friel has said that Translations is "a play about language and only about language", but it deals with a wide range of issues, stretching from language and communication to Irish history and cultural imperialism. Friel said that his play "should have been written in Irish" but, despite this fact, he carefully crafted the verbal action in English, bringing the political questions of the play into focus. Baile Beag ("Small Town") is a fictional village, created by Friel as a setting for several of his plays,although there are many real places called Ballybeg throughout Ireland.

Translations (Play) William Zappa, Jess Hoddle Mogensen, Douglas Hedge, Elin Jenkins, Chris Connelly, Jackie Kerin, Edwin Hodgeman, Peter Crossley, Michael Edgar, Steven Tandy
