Play Notes


Unbeknownst to the Donnelly family, some of their neighbours have begun meeting after dark
to form a Vigilance Committee, with the blessing of their new parish Priest, Father Connolly. As
the factions form, the Donnelly family find themselves at the centre of accusations, rumour,
and curses.
On the fateful night of February 4 th , 1880, a mob descends on the Donnelly homestead, and by
morning, the only living witness to one of the most notorious crimes in Canadian history is an
innocent ten year old boy.
When the court convenes, and the testimony is heard, how will the jury find?
The dramatic conclusion to the Donnelly saga, full of fury, fire, and fiddle music.
