The five plays and their productions analyzed closely here are each significant in terms of the performance idiom and the placing of body. Bernadette Sweeney focuses on the liveness of the bodies of the actors and on the performance context, using gender and postcolonial studies to set the context of each production. Productions analyzed include the high-profile (Dancing at Lughnasa), the influential (The Great Hunger) and the hidden (The Saxon Shore). The book also considers contemporary stagings of the body in Irish theatre, including dance theatre and interdisciplinary work."@en ;
