Drama with comedy / 13m., 4f. / 2 alternating sets / From the deep stirrings within the core of a craggy island off the coast of Ireland comes the voice of this contemporary play. The island is Cliffhorn Heads and the islanders--great fisherman--face a famine caused by the international radar trawlers that have fished their waters clean. Yet there's still enough humor in these islanders to take the edge off their hunger. Masters of the Sea continues the action of Sea Marks; it is a sequel, though it stands alone and does not depend on its predecessor. Colm returns to his island followed by his wife-to-be (Timothea Stiles) who visits him only to bring him back with her. His father--The Macafee--appears to explain his own dying to his son. Colm murders an Englishman he has rescued from drowning. / "An absolutely brilliant piece of playwriting." Kansas City Star
