Lance Corporal Francis Ledwidge lost his life in Flanders Fields in 1917. One of Ireland's finest poets, Ledwidge left the familiarity of his Co. Meath home and loved ones and joined the British Army to follow the fate of so many other young men of that doomed generation. Hovering in the hazy half-light of memories and regrets and marking the 90th anniversary of the 3rd Battle of Ypres in 1917, this beautiful new play by Dermot Bolger follows Francis Ledwidge's final journey as he finds himself 'walking the road' alongside all of those who had touched his life.
