Riders to the Sea is a one-act, classic and poetic Irish tragedy set in the Arran Islands off the west coast of Ireland, a forbidding barren place where about the only sustenance is from the wild sea. The inhabitants are hardy and resourceful, but primitive in their ways and beliefs, which have kept them alive despite the hardships and meager comforts. To assist with the singing, keening and accents, Margaret McLynn will be the coach. She lived on the Arran Islands and is an accomplished singer and pianist.
