"Based on the story of an actual family who came out from Ireland in 1844 to Biddulph Township, Ontario, and were nearly annihilated by a secret society formed among their neighbours 36 years later. The complete story of the Donnellys is too large for one evening. This play gets you started and takes you as far as when 'persons unknown' burnt down James Donnelly's barn in 1867. Donnelly defied this invitation to get out of the neighbourhood and he swore that he would stay in Biddulph Township forever. He is still there. It was at this time that the Donnellys decided to be Donnellys."
