Lecture, Readings and Discussion
Irish Drama: Late 20th Century will explore Irish theatre after the founding geniuses of the Abbey Theater. After Sean Casey's outstanding Dublin trilogy of the 1920s, Teresa Deevy was one of the most successful playwrights of the 1930s. In our anthology we will read from plays such as Brendan Behan's The Quare Fella; Samuel Beckett's most Irish play, All That Fall; Hugh Leonard's Da; and Brian Friel's Translations.
