Belfast, 1991 and 1871.
RUC photographer Washburn cracks up, becoming obsessed with an unsolved death from 1871 and linking it with the recent murder that pushed him over the edge. His lover Nuala has to contend with this and with religious apartheid in police circles. The same masonic attitude stymies Victorian Dubliner Dr. Mulcahy in his (simultaneously unfolding) attempt to solve the earlier death. Both protagonists also grapple with the ramifications of migration to and from the province.
Cast doubling is possible. See original production for details. The original production also included five child actors.
