Michaelmas Week 3
"Whah am I to do wud the farm, Isaac? Three hundred acre a the finest land this side a the Shannon and west a the Pale. And me only son and heir can't tell nigh from day, oak from ash, he'd milk a bull and drink ud in his tay and never know the differ."
'On Raftery's Hill' is Marina Carr's epic tragedy of rural life. Three generations of Rafterys live together - they're a farming family, but both family and farm have ben debased beyond recognition. The close knit fabric of their community hides horrible acts - the play is a shocking exposure of rural life, and the corruption to be found within the mundane.
