Summary

Here, now, listen, I’ll tell you a tale . . .

Daffodils are in bloom as dawn breaks over the foothills of Ballycumber, ushering in hope for a new day and stirring the ghosts of a past fraught with sorrow, anguish and emptiness.

In search of advice, young Evans Stafford calls at the home of friend and strong-minded traditionalist, Nicholas Farquhar.

Sebastian Barry’s Tales of Ballycumber premiered at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, in September 2009.
