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

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 95 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
B for baby by Carmel Winters( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'B for Baby' is a tender, sharp-witted play set in a residential care home for people with severe learning disabilities. Treating this taboo subject with humanity and humour, the play's acute and compassionate portraits result in a moving, if at times uncomfortable, drama. Mrs C wants a baby not a Christmas tree. B wants a real hairdresser's scissors and a wife. D wants a snow globe and to have curly hair. All of them want their own place in the world. And if they can't find it, they'll create one of their own. The play follows B and D, and Mrs C their carer, on their journey towards happiness. Poignantly exploring forbidden topics, 'B for Baby' invites the reader or audience to rediscover the power and joy of make-believe. It was first presented by the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, in 2010

The burial at Thebes : a version of Sophocles' Antigone by Seamus Heaney( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sophocles' play stands as a timely exploration of the conflict between those who affirm the individual's human rights and those who must protect the state's security. During the War of the Seven Against Thebes, Antigone learns that her brothers have killed each other, having been forced onto opposing sides. When Creon, king of Thebes, grants burial of one but not the "treacherous" other, Antigone defies his order, believing it her duty to bury all of her close kin. Enraged, Creon condemns her to death, and his soldiers wall her up in a tomb. In this new translation, Seamus Heaney exposes the darkness and the humanity in Sophocles' masterpiece, and inks it with his own modern and masterly touch
Kicking a dead horse : a play by Sam Shepard( Book )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A solitary man digs a hole in the ground, near a dead horse. Amid the clutter of food and equipment stands Hobart Struther, who has ridden all the way out to the middle of nowhere on a holy mission. But one day into his "grand sojourn," things are looking bleak. His horse has choked to death, he's miles away from civilization, and there's not a person around to talk to - other than himself. As Hobart examines his rise - how he built a vast art collection while ensconced in a comfortable Park Avenue lifestyle - he digs deep into his own history, unearthing truths about his past while still struggling to find the answers he needs."--Jacket
