A dramatic and poetic meditation on the history and present plight of Derry. McGuinness develops the non-naturalistic techniques of his celebrated Observe the Sons of Ulster Marching Towards the Somme, to produce a testament that is elegiac, angry, ironic and profound.

Carthaginians was first performed at the Peacock Theatre, Dublin, in September 1988.
