Shadow and Substance

This specific production does not yet have a description, but the play itself does:

Based on a legend connected with St. Brigid which relates how, in order to escape the attentions of persistent suiters, she disfigured the loveliness of her face at Faughart, her birthplace, near Dundalk, Ireland.
