About The Show

It is 1833, and change is coming to rural County Donegal: While a hodgepodge group gather at an Irish-language hedge school to study classics of Greek and Latin literature, British army engineers arrive to map the country, draw new borders, and translate local place names into the King’s English. Languages and histories collide, kindling romance and inciting violence. A modern classic from an Irish master, directed by Studio’s Belfast-born Associate Artistic Director, TRANSLATIONS reminds us how personal the political can be.

Studio Theatre is Washington’s premier venue for contemporary theatre, "where local audiences will find today’s edgiest playwrights" (Variety). Studio produces the work of today’s greatest writers, augmented by occasional productions of modern classics. Studio's work is marked by its emphasis on excellence in acting and design, and the signature intimacy of its four theatres, all of which seat fewer than 225 patrons. The quality of this work has been recognized over its 38-year history by sustained community support and 60 Helen Hayes Awards for excellence in professional theatre.
