The Clearing

By Hub Theatre Company of Boston (other events)

10 Dates Through Apr 20, 2019

                                                   What happens when justice isn't just? 

This passionate, poignant and powerful historical drama tells the story of an English aristocrat and his Irish wife whose love is challenged, loyalties tested and lives forever changed by the divisive politics and long held prejudices of their time. Set in Ireland during "the curse of Cromwell," Edmundson uses a historical lens to capture the horror of today’s ethnic cleansing and forced transplantation. Full of treachery and treason, The Clearing adeptly funnels an intimate love story into a national tragedy presenting a political and moral dilemma that still resonates today. 

All tickets are Pay-What-You-Can!  The means we don't decide the price, you do! Our "sweet spot" would be about $20 per person; if you are on a budget, pay less, and if you are able to pay more, please do!
