UK première of this highly acclaimed play set during the 1689 Siege of Derry.
A Yorkshire cobbler awaits execution after being captured trying to gain entry into the besieged city disguised as a woman... An embittered aristocrat, the cobbler's rival in love, dines alone in his stately home... As the men's stories unfold, the reality of the Siege, and the consequences of obsessive love swept up in the tide of history come vividly alive.
