About this book

Introduction

The development of contemporary drama in the 1980s into a depiction of a new Irish reality has contributed to a new Irish drama aesthetic, sparked originally by plays such as Hugh Leonard's Da and Stewart Parker's Spokesong. In this new book, Michael Etherton looks at the work of the most influential modern Irish dramatists to show how their work contributes to a radically different view of what constitutes 'Irish' and 'drama'.
