The Home Place
The play is set in the summer of 1878 in the mythical village of Ballybeg, at the house of Christopher Gore, who lives with his son David, and their longtime housekeeper Margaret. Dr Gore’s methods and racist hypotheses ignite animosity in the town, where a despised English landlord, Lord Lifford, was recently murdered. The Lifford killing is based on the actual murder of William Clements, 3rd Earl of Leitrim in April 1878.
