THE SHOW

the Hired Man was Howard’s first professional musical, completed when he was 26. It is a passionate and earthy work, inspired by the stage works of Kurt Weill, English choral and folk music and – specifically – by the emotional impact of seeing Brian Friel’s play set in rural Ireland, ‘Translations’.
