About the Author:

BRIAN SINGLETON Research Fellow at the Freie Universität Berlin (Interweaving Cultures of Performance Research Centre) and teaches at Trinity College Dublin. His research focus is on orientalism, interculturalism and networks in performance with specific reference to race and gender. Previous publications include Oscar Asche, Orientalism and British Musical Comedy (2004), two books on the life and work of Antonin Artaud, and two special collections of essays on contemporary Irish theatre for Australasian Drama Studies (with Anna McMullan) and Modern Drama (with Karen Fricker). He is President of the International Federation for Theatre Research.

Review:

'Singleton's treatment of [a] broad swath of work results in a varied, yet detailed, study' - Modern Drama

'This is a beautifully written, engaging and grounding breaking book. Its rigorous approach to masculinity as a diverse, complex and contradictory category makes it an extremely important contribution not just to the study of Irish theatre and performance and to postcolonial studies but to the field as a whole.' - Geraldine Harris, Lancaster University, UK

'This new edition brings Brian Singleton's landmark study of masculinities and contemporary Irish theatre right up to date, offering compelling readings of recent theatre texts and performances and new perspectives on classic Irish theatre from Yeats onwards. Singleton's book is an authoritative, comprehensive, and insightful guide to Irish theatre's responses to the contemporary moment, charting the emergence of new theatrical languages and voices.' - Anna McMullan, University of Reading, UK
