"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 94 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 )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 78 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

A gothic science-fiction thriller, 'Observatory' details the entangled lives of four people across two centuries. The play is set at the Armagh Observatory and Museum for Astronomy and Natural Philosophy, in both 1799 and 1999. Historian and archive cataloguer Jon McKenna finds his life becoming entangled with that of assistant astronomer Nicola McLoughlin. Together they work to uncover the 200-year-old story of astronomer Archibald Hamilton and his assistant Robert Hogg - man of science, man of God, and revolutionary. The Observatory, a symbol of both science and religion, becomes the setting for a powerful exploration of nationhood and revolution, love and betrayal. 'Observatory' was first performed in 1999 at the Peacock Theatre, Dublin
