THE CLEARING

By HELEN EDMUNDSON
Directed by PAMELA MOLLER KAREMAN
With HAMISH ALLAN-HEADLEY, QUINN CASSAVALE, LAUREN CURRIE LEWIS, DAVID LICHT, NEAL MAYER, RON SIMS, JAKOB VON EICHEL, and TESSA ZUGMEYER

In this gripping drama, Robert, an English aristocrat, and his free-spirited Irish wife Maddy find their loving relationship overwhelmed by the dangerous political climate in Ireland, which threatens to separate them for good. Should Robert ensure his own economic prosperity by betraying his wife and child, or should he risk banishment to inhospitable land to keep his family intact?

Set against Oliver Cromwell's ruthless campaign to force Catholics out of Ireland, Helen Edmundson's brilliantly original and heartbreakingly relevant play The Clearing examines our universal desire for acceptance amid prejudice and fear in a stunning tale of treachery, romance, and passion.
