A new play by Rory Gleeson
Presented by Landmark Productions and Keynote Productions
When Big Jim Donnelly moves to Biddulph, Ontario in 1845, and stakes a claim on settled land, the locals know there will be trouble.
Based on a true story, spiralling down the centuries, Blood in the Dirt traces the history of violence in modern settlement, the cost of survival, and the meaning of legacy.
Written by Rory Gleeson, Caitríona McLaughlin directs one of Ireland’s leading actors, Lorcan Cranitch, in this epic tale of family, dispossession and the attachment to land.
