Tis the Season: An Ulster Scots Ghost Story

This is the story o’ Stumpy’s Brae

And the murderer’s fearful fate.

Young friend, your face is turned that way,

You’ll be ganging the night that gate.

Stumpy’s Brae, or The Legend of Tom the Toiler

Set in rural Ulster in the early 1700’s, this drama is an Ulster-Scots ghost story based on the poem by Cecil Francis Alexander.
