New plays from the Abbey Theatre( Book )

in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This anthology invites readers to experience five of the best new plays produced since 1993 in Ireland's famous Abbey Theatre."--BOOK JACKET. "Michael Harding's Hubert Murray's Widow, his fourth play for the Abbey, is a surreal nightmare revolving around a killing and a funeral. With a macabre sense of humor, he explores the sense of confusion and harsh reality of sectarian violence in Northern Ireland's border counties today."--BOOK JACKET. "Neil Donnelly has had five plays produced by the National Theatre Society since 1980. His comedy, The Duty Master, deals with an Irish-born school teacher who has rejected his roots to the extent that he has become "more English than the English." Marital strife, combined with a visit from his brother to the exclusive public school north of London where he works, results in his being forced to reconsider his personal and national identity."--BOOK JACKET. "In Asylum! Asylum! Donal O'Kelly explores the mysteries and horrors of Irish Asylum Law (or the lack of it). With humor, compassion, and anger, O'Kelly presents the plight of an illegal African immigrant."--BOOK JACKET. "Niall Williams's A Little Like Paradise depicts with hope and humor the regeneration of a small Western Irish town unknown to the European community and ignored by Dublin."--BOOK JACKET. "The final play in the collection, Tom Mac Intyre's Sheep's Milk on the Boil is set on a remote island off the Irish coast."--BOOK JACKET

"Buffoonery and easy sentiment" : popular Irish plays in the decade prior to the opening of the Abbey Theatre by Christopher Fitz-Simon( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this fascinating reappraisal of the non-literary drama of the late 19th- early 20th century, the author discloses a unique world of plays, players and producers in metropolitan theatres in Ireland and other countries where Ireland was viewed as a source of extraordinary topics at once contemporary and comfortably remote: revolution, eviction, famine, agrarian agitation, political assassination. The form was the fashionable one of melodrama, yet Irish melodrama was of a particular kind replete with hidden messages, and the language was far more allusive, colourful and entertaining than that of its English equivalent
