"Three Irishmen. Digging. Telling tales to put down the day. But as they dig down, long-buried secrets begin to emerge and the story they tell is as dark as the earth itself. It is a tale full of rich and striking characters. The Kingdom vividly captures life as an Irish navvy in the last century - a time of immigration, violence, sex, triumph and, ultimately, tragedy. Rooted in the dramas of ancient Greece, The Kingdom is Colin Teevan's haunting and lyrical new play."
