Welcome to the Mandy Actors UK Plays Directory.
The information below is intended to give you a brief guide to the show and highlight some of the other Mandy Actors UK members who have also been involved in this show.
It is set in Baile Beag (Ballybeg), a small village at the heart of 19th century agricultural Ireland. Friel has said that Translations is "a play about language and only about language", but it deals with a wide range of issues, stretching from language and communication to Irish history and cultural imperialism. Despite the 1833 setting, there are obvious parallels between Baile Beag and today's world.
