Scene: The parochial house of Canon Skerritt in Ardmahone, a small town in County Louth, Ireland.
The Canon is an aristocrat, fastidious, cultivated, and capable of cruelty. In the small Irish township of Ardmahone he is obviously, and self-consciously, out of place. Here his sonorous Latin and elegant Spanish fall on deaf ears and even the English language is spoken in slovenly fashion; no one can appreciate the distinction between his fine reproductions of old masters and the gaudiest of oleographs; despite his careful teaching, the height of gastronomic bliss is still a 'whippin' good plate of cabbage and bacon.' His curates are merely unshaven hearties given to what he stigmatises as 'hunting after popular glory - an Irish clerical disease.' Sometimes he gets an exquisite pleasure from exposing, in cutting words, 'the vulgarity of it all,' the brutality of the ignorance that surrounds him and its dark, crude superstition. But there are moments when it overwhelms him and he confesses to loneliness.
There is only one man whose mental stature approaches his, the schoolteacher O'Flingsley, but his belligerent air of 'fire and smoke and things falling' is hardly in tune with the Canon's cold delicacy, and the two men are enemies.
Which leaves only Brigid, the inarticulate servant girl with a far-away air. She tries to bridge the gap between them, offering both her affection, telling both her great secret. Her aim is to unite and there is a sense in which she succeeds - though at what cost viewers must find out for themselves. (Elwyn Jones)
