The Theatre of Sean OCasey PDF

James Moran

This Critical Companion to the work of one of Irelands most famous and controversial playwrights, Sean OCasey, is the first major study of the playwrights work to consider his oeuvre and the archival material that has appeared during the last decade. Published ahead of the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising in Ireland with which OCaseys most famous plays are associated, it provides a clear and detailed study of the work in context and performance.

James Moran shows that OCasey not only remains the most performed playwright at Irelands national theatre, but that the playwright was also one of the most controversial and divisive literary figures, whose work caused riots and who alienated many of his supporters. Since the start of the Troubles in the North of Ireland, his work has been associated with Irish historical revisionism, and has become the subject of debate about Irish nationalism and revolutionary history.

Morans admirably clear study considers the writers plays, autobiographical writings and essays, paying special attention to the Dublin trilogy, The Shadow of a Gunman, Juno and the Paycock, and The Plough and the Stars. It considers the work produced in exile, during the war and the late plays. The Companion also features a number of interviews and essays by other leading scholars and practitioners, including Garry Hynes, Victor Merriman and Paul Murphy, which provide further critical perspectives on the work.
