Starring Des Keogh and Derry Power, two elderly farmers, Eamon and Nashee, meet at a gate on a remote hillside in The Quiet Land at Garter Lane Theatre on Friday 24th and Saturday 25th March at 8pm. They are old rivals, old neighbours. Their conversation is of a gentler time. But there's nothing gentle about today's conversation. They are forced to confront each other with some heartbreaking truths.

Tickets are €21/€16 (Garter Lane Friends and concessions) and can be booked on 051-855038 or http://www.garterlane.ie
