Set in a graveyard at Twigworth in Gloucestershire, at the burial place of First World War poet and composer Ivor Gurney, the play concerns two single middle-aged people – one a man originally from South Armagh, the other a local woman from Gloucester – who meet, chat, and exchange thoughts on poets, soldiers and war, and then something triggers a memory from the man’s past, a particular incident in the Troubles….
The songs I had are withered
Or vanished clean,
Yet there are bright tracks
Where I have been,
And there grow flowers
For other’s delight.
Think well, O singer,
Soon comes night.

Karsten Bernick has it all. Family. Power. Wealth. Money. Respect.
John Tonnesen, Karstenâ€™s brother in-law, has nothing to lose.
Nothing that is but the lie and blame he shouldered on Karstenâ€™s behalf fifteen years ago.
In a community ready to place blame at the foot of another, John threatens to destroy everything Bernick has built.
Unravelling the seedy past leaves Bernick with only two choices: confess to his earlier sins or commit a new one, murder.
Bernick grapples with his conscience as the town prepares to honour him for his great works and all the while we wonder about the personal cost of those that are â€˜The Pillars of the Communityâ€™
