Book Description:

The play that established Barry as one of Ireland's most powerful contemporary playwrights

About the Author:

Brendan Behan (1923-64) found fame and notoriety with his work and Republican sympathies. Christina Reid, from Belfast, came to prominence in the 1980s. Tom Murphy's many plays are collected into 5 volumes by Methuen Drama; his most recent play opened in Dublin in 2006. Martin McDonagh's first play, The Beauty Queen of Leenane, was the 1996 winner of the George Devine Award and the Evening Standard Award for Most Promising Newcomer. Sebastian Barry is a poet, dramatist and novelist. Patrick Lonergan is professor of English at the National University of Ireland.
