Apart from her collaborations with W.B.Yeats and others, and translated adaptations, she produced thirty nine plays, while devoting a great ddeal of time to the management of the Abbey Theatre, and the Lane Pictures. Described with admiration by Bernard Shaw as the Irish Moliere, she contributed plays in every genre-comedies, tragedies, tragic-comedies, wonder and supernatural plays-and for every audience, most effectively in the one act form. This collection of thirteen plays, and her writings about them, is intended to show the breadth of her playwriting abilities, and her thoughts on the plays and their creation.
