29 editions published between 1933 and 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sean O'Casey leaves his customary scene, the Dublin streets and tenements, and finds the setting for his new play in a public park in London. Here the nursemaids stroll with their charges before the admiring gardeners; the scarlet woman flouts the weak but well-meaning Bishop, the atheist and the dreamer argue together, while the down-and-outs tramp by, chanting their sad refrain. It is a drama of sin and virtue; of life and love and sorrow, with scorn for all shams and pious pretenses, a cheer for the brave sinner, and a sigh for the underdog." --Dust jacket
Three plays : Juno and the paycock, the shadow of a gunman, the plough and the stars by Sean O'Casey( Book )

43 editions published between 1933 and 1994 in English and held by 747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three early plays by Sean O'Casey--arguably his three greatest--demonstrate vividly O'Casey's ability to convey the reality of life and the depth of human emotion, specifically in Dublin before and during the Irish civil war of 1922-23, but, truly, throughout the known universe. In mirroring the lives of the Dublin poor, from the tenement dwellers in The Shadow of a Gunman and Juno and the Paycock to the bricklayer, street vendor, and charwoman in The Plough and the Stars, Sean O'Casey conveys with urgency and eloquence the tiny details that create a total character as well as the terrors, large and small, that the constant threat of political violence inevitably brings. As Seamus Heaney has written, "O'Casey's characters are both down to earth and larger than life . . . His democratic genius was at one with his tragic understanding, and his recoil from tyranny and his compassion for the oppressed were an essential--as opposed to a moral and thematic--part of his art--Amazon

The New York Times describes the play " ... as based on a strike in Dublin in 1913-1914 that led to the 'bloody Easter Week Rising of 1916.' But as in all Mr. O'Casey's latter-day plays, the real theme is the life of man-his valor, his joy, his love, his religious devotion, his loyalty and his belief in the future ..."--Www.doollee.com

Cock-a-doodle dandy by Sean O'Casey( Book )

23 editions published between 1948 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this unique and comically fantastic beast fable, an enchanted cock and his cohorts, Robin Adair, Marion, Loreleen, and Lorna, battle the repressive forces of the two local gombeen men, Marthraum and Mahoon, the parish priest, Father Domineer, and his trio of grotesque crawthumpers, Shanaar, One-Eyed Larry, and the Bellman. It is a lost cause, for while the laughs are many and merry, the vision is ultimately a dark one; by play's end, the comic villains may be thoroughly discredited, but the rebelliously joyful crew depart from the village in symbolic exile
