Set in famine-stricken St. Ann’s, Cape Breton in 1851, the play depicts the fiery dissident Presbyterian minister, Rev. Norman MacLeod, who persecutes those who disagree with him, especially a small boy with second sight. The mythological figure of the reverend thunders through the play. The play is full of Gaelic song, powerful drama and romance
