Images have been released showing Colin Morgan and the cast of Translations in rehearsals ahead of previews of the play beginning in the Olivier at the National Theatre later this month.
Brian Friel’s play is about Owen who returns to the rural Irish town of Donegal from Dublin, with two British army officers in tow. The officers aim to create map of the area, and replace the traditional Gaelic names with English ones.
Directed by Ian Rickson, the cast also includes Dermot Crowley, Aoife Duffin, Adetomiwa Edun, Michelle Fox, Ciarán Hinds, Laurence Kinlan, Seamus O’Hara, Judith Roddy and Rufus Wright.
The production will have designs by Rae Smith, lighting by Neil Austin, music by Stephen Warbeck and sound design by Ian Dickinson.
