In Marina Carr's epic tragedy of rural life, three generations of the Rafterys live together in the midlands of Ireland. It's a closely knit farming community where hatred and rumours of incest, stillborn children, and abused families seem more common than love and affection.

On Raftery's Hill was first performed as a Druid Theatre/Royal Court Theatre co-production at the Town Hall Theatre, Galway, in May 2000. It was subsequently performed at the Royal Court, London, in June of the same year.
