Based on Eugene McCabe's modern Irish classic, Death and Nightingales is a riveting story of love, betrayal, deception and revenge, set in the beautiful haunting countryside of Fermanagh in 1885. A place where neighbours observe each other and inform, a world of spies, confessions and double dealing; where a pervading sense of beauty is shot through with menace and impending doom.Set over a desperately tense 24-hour period, it's Beth Winters' 25th birthday - the day she has decided to join the charming Liam Ward and escape from her limited life and difficult and complex relationship with her Protestant landowner stepfather Billy. As decades of pain and betrayal finally build to a devastating climax, Death and Nightingales is a powerful and gripping drama that follows a woman struggling to control her own destiny and will illuminate tensions that tear both families and nations apart.
Growing up, Beth Winters was caught between two warring parents, her Catholic mother Catherine having married her Protestant step-father Billy when she was already pregnant by an unknown Catholic man.
On her 23rd birthday, her mother long dead, Beth has planned to escape the claustrophobic grip of Billy and their closed community by running away with charming, mysterious Liam Ward. But with the hour of reckoning fast approaching, can Beth hold her nerve?
Beth decides to tell Mercy that she's leaving Fermanagh, but Mercy protests and exclaims it will break her heart - and Billy's too. Beth puts her plan to run away with Liam into action but a suspicious and very drunk Billy questions Beth: is there anything she has to tell him?
