Following on from their hugely succesful season of Irish drama, the Finborough present the first professional production in the UK for over 80 years of the starkly tragic Autumn Fire, the classic 1924 Irish tragedy by T. C. Murray.

Rural Ireland, the 1920s. Farmer Owen Keegan, a middle aged widower with two grown up children, is famed throughout the county for his strength and vigour. When he falls in love with Nance Desmond, an attractive young woman half his age, he must fight the disapproval and hostility of his neighbours and relatives, as the lives of Owen, Nance, and Owen’s son and daughter are torn apart by his passion.

Autumn Fire was first seen at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, in 1924 starring Sara Allgood, F.J. McCormack and Barry Fitzgerald. It was subsequently seen in both the West End and on Broadway, and was last seen in London at the Everyman Theatre, Hampstead, in 1931.
