Theatre and globalization : Irish drama in the Celtic Tiger era by Patrick Lonergan( Book )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Globalization is transforming theatre everywhere. As writers seek to exploit new opportunities to produce their work internationally, audiences are seeing the world - and the stage - differently. And, as national borders have become more fluid, the barriers between economics and culture are also becoming weaker. In this groundbreaking study, Patrick Lonergan explores these developments, placing them in the context of the transformation of Ireland - the 'most globalized country in the world' - since the early 1990s. Drawing on archival material that has never before been published, this study sheds new light on the culture of Celtic Tiger Ireland. In doing so, it shows how globalization poses difficult questions for authors and audiences - and reveals how we can begin to come to terms with these new developments."--Jacket
The theatre of Harold Pinter by Mark Taylor-Batty( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The plays of the late Nobel laureate Harold Pinter have formed part of the canon of world theatre since the 1960s. Frequently revived on the professional stage, and studied on almost every Theatre Studies course, his importance and influence is hard to overestimate. This 'Critical Companion' offers an assessment of Pinter's entire body of work for the stage, appraising his skill as a dramatist and considering his impact and legacy. Through a clear focus on issues of theatricality and the effect of the plays in performance, this book considers Pinter's chief narrative concerns and offers a unifying theme through which over four decades of work may be understood. Plays are considered in themed chapters that follow the chronological sequence of work, illuminating the development of his aesthetic and concerns. 00

The lonesome West by Martin McDonagh( Book )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Lonesome West was first presented as a Druid Theatre Company and Royal Court coproduction in the summer of 1997, and is the final part of McDonagh's trilogy set in an fictionalized and impoverished western Ireland village called Leenane. Its substantial themes and textured controversy make it a popular choice to study—the Catholic Church is exposed as irrelevant and powerless and the characters have a dangerously skewed sense of morality. The text is full of McDonagh's characteristic combination of farce, aggression, and wit. The plot follows two brothers, Valene and Coleman, living alone in their father's house after his recent death. They find it impossible to exist without massive and violent disputes over the most mundane and innocent of topics. Only Father Welsh, the young local priest, is prepared to try to reconcile the two before their petty squabblings spiral into vicious and bloody carnage. Martin McDonagh is the most controversial Irish dramatist working today, with his explorations of Irish national identity that look at the darker side of provincial life. His bleak but blackly comic portrayal of modern, rural Ireland courts debate with its dark farce, caricatures of violence and barbarism, and an exaggerated, poeticized dialect of Hiberno-English."--Publisher description

Verse drama in England, 1900-2015 : art, modernity, and the national stage by Irene Morra( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern Verse Drama" explores the emergence of the form at the turn of the century and its development into the twenty-first, offering key case studies of well-known verse dramatists alongside explorations of less-discussed but equally influential writers within the form. Dramatists discussed include T. S. Eliot, Gordon Bottomley, Charles Williams, W. H. Auden, Christopher Isherwood, Ronald Duncan, Christopher Fry, John Arden, Anne Ridler, Tony Harrison, Ted Hughes, and Caryl Churchill. The book explores the negotiation of these dramatists with the changing position of verse drama in relation to constructions of national and communal audience, aesthetic challenge, and dramatic heritage. Key to the study is the self-conscious positioning of many of these dramatists in relation to an assumed mainstream tradition - and the various critical responses that that positioning has provoked
