Performances will begin at Dublin's Olympia Theatre Jan. 13, 2011, and continue to Feb. 12. The production will then transfer to the INEC, Killarney, Feb. 15-17, followed by a transfer to the Royal Theatre, Castlebar, Feb. 24-26.

Dennehy will play the role of "The Bull" McCabe.

The Field's dark story, according to press notes, "burrows deep into the heart of rural Ireland in the late 1950s. At its core is the enduring link between the Irish people and the land. It is based on the true story of the 1959 murder of Moss Moore, a bachelor farmer. His neighbor, Dan Foley, with whom Moore had a long-standing dispute over a right of way, was believed to have committed the murder. Foley’s family denied the charge and no one was ever brought to justice."

The Field is presented by Pat Moylan, Donal Shiels, Breda Cashe, in association with Lane Productions and MCD.
