In About O’Casey Dr Victoria Stewart explores the life and work of Sean O’Casey, whose writing career spanned some of the most tumultuous times in Ireland’s history, tracing the path which led him to an association with Dublin’s Abbey Theatre in the early 1920s, and the turns his career took after he made the decision to leave Ireland for good.
The book includes interviews with O’Casey, and the theatre practitioners who have put his work on stage, including Paul Kerryson, John Crowley, Dearbhla Molloy, Andy Arnold and Shivaun O’Casey. A clear and stimulating collection of material on one of Ireland’s major writers.
