By Ramon del Valle-Inclan, translated and adapted by David Johnston. One of the greatest plays by Spain's most innovative 20th-century dramatist, `Divine Words' is set in Valle-Inclan's native Gallecia, the Celtic corner of north-west Spain. It presents a grotesque, distorted picture of rural life, a primitive society where amorality, avarice, adultery and cowardice flourish. With T P McKenna, Dervla Kirwan, Denys Hawthorne, Gerald McSorley, Sorcha Cusack and Frances Tomelty. Director Kate Rowland. / By Ramon del Valle-Inclan, translated and adapted by David Johnston.
