Enniskillen Drama Festival 2024 – In The Shadow of the Glen
Newpoint Players - "In the Shadow of the Glen: Reimagined" by Sean Treanor (after J.M. Synge)
The play, “In the Shadow of the Glen”, written by J.M. Synge and performed in the first days of the Abbey Theatre Dublin, tells the story of an unfaithful wife Nora, married to an aged man Dan Burke. The story follows how the husband tricks his wife into revealing her true feelings and her ambitions for when she will be a widow. In this reimagined version, Sean Treanor explores these themes of earthy, ‘animal passions’ and the turbulent underbelly of life and nature, which can be detected in the subtext of Synge’s original and in Synge’s better known play, “The Playboy of the Western World”
