The three part limited series, based on the novel from Eugene McCabe, is a “riveting story of love, betrayal, deception and revenge, set in the haunting countryside of 1885 Fermanagh, Northern Ireland.”
Death and Nightingales takes place over a desperately tense 24-hour period, it’s Beth Winters’ (Skelly) 23rd birthday – the day she has decided to join the charming Liam Ward (Dornan) and escape from her limited life and difficult Protestant landowner stepfather Billy (Matthew Rhys).
As decades of pain and betrayal build to a devastating climax, Death and Nightingales is a powerful and gripping drama that follows a woman struggling to control her own destiny and will illuminate tensions that tear both families and nations apart.
Death and Nightingales is expected to debut on May 16.
Ann is currently starring on this HBO Max fantasy series.
