SYNOPSIS:

In this wonderfully witty folk-play, Con arrives to cut down the wood at the D’arcy demesne. He encounters Sanbatch living by the abandoned castle gates and soon meets “some comical Irishmen” in the wood of the whispering; a nether–world, where colourful characters live in “fear of losing themselves” pondering life’s path in love and living, against their practical needs. Sanbatch, sensing their way of life stolen away as the fairies stole Sadie, schemes to save the day; in the end of all, the young people with “enough good sense got“ settle in the “Wood of the Whispering”.
