Translations is a three-act play by Irish playwright Brian Friel written in 1980. It is set in Baile Beag, a small, fictional village at the heart of 19th century agricultural Ireland.
Friel has said that Translations is "a play about language and only about language", but it deals with a wide range of issues, stretching from language and communication to cultural imperialism. Despite the 1833 setting, there are obvious parallels between Baile Beag and today's world. Translations was first performed at the Guildhall in Derry, Northern Ireland, on Tuesday, 23 September 1980. In 2007, the play will be revived on Broadway.
