The Donnellys

Overview

The Donnellys is a dramatic compression of the tragedy surrounding the Donnelly family of Lucan, Ontario. Time-worn feuds of Ireland followed them to this farm community, where hate festered until the eve of February 4, 1880. That night, a group of avenging townspeople slaughtered several members of the Donnelly family. The violence of that act has passed into legeng, but legends die hard, and the Donnellys live on in this gripping, dramatic piece of theatre.
