Pitlochry Festival Theatre

Canada 1914. Sarah McCrea stands on the threshold of womanhood, facing a bright future in a new country. Leaving Ulster behind, Sarah and her family carve out their existence in an emerging community. Read more …

Drawn to one another through tales of a near-forgotten mythical Ireland, Sarah and her neighbour Michael Donoghue become firm friends. But when Sarah and Michael’s relationship deepens and his determination to define his identify catches fire, centuries of conflict threaten to blight their love. And for Sarah, the realisation dawns that old battles are being fought on new territory.

First staged in 1998, Heritage is a poignant and poetic exploration of love, identity, tribalism and the need to belong. As stark and poignant as the sweeping landscape it conjures, all at once it is epic, lyrical and timeless.

The critical consensus

A flawless piece of theatre.
