‘DEATH AND NIGHTINGALES’
BBC hasreleased first photos from their new three-part period set mini-series DEATH AND NIGHTINGALES with Jamie Dornan, Matthew Rhys and Ann Skelly! A story of love, betrayal, deception and revenge, it is set in the haunting countryside of Fermanagh in 1885. It’s a world of spies, confessions and double dealings where neighbours observe each other and inform. The tale takes place over a desperately tense 24-hour period. It’s Beth Winters’ (Ann Skelly) 23rd birthday and also the day she has decided to join the charming Liam Ward (Jamie Dornan) to escape from her limited life and complex relationship with her Protestant landowner stepfather Billy (Matthew Rhys). As decades of pain and betrayal finally build to a devastating climax, the series sees a woman struggling to control her own destiny and will ultimately illuminate tensions that tear both families and nations apart.
|The series is based on Eugene McCabe modern Irish Classic. Ann Skelly and Jamie Dornan lead the cast|
