Joyriders: Geography and Identity

  • Rachel Tracie


This chapter focuses on Reid’s 1986 play Joyriders and centers the discussion of the play around Reid’s creation of vivid locations and places through her use of songs, setting, and dialogue. This analysis is followed by a discussion of productions of the play at the Tricycle Theatre, London; its subsequent tour throughout Northern Ireland and England; its Dublin production at The Project Theatre; and its production at the Lyric Belfast almost ten years after its premiere.
