One of the great 20th century plays. Universal themes of poverty and nationalism, and ways in which the innocent and non-combatant get mortally caught in the cross fire of insurgent and resistant fighting. Superb evocation of time and place and fundamentals of the human condition which remain relevant. An original and highly seminal piece of work - should be read, and experienced in action. The writing and the engaging contradictory characters, where the women have greater understanding of actualities, whereas the men find succour in gambling, alcohol and 'the cause', are realisations of fundamental truths.

For those of you who dont know the most famous of Sean O'Casey's plays - it's a classic in every sense. Its clever mix of the tragic and comic and fine dramtic presentation of the Dublin working class offer an an intriguing literary product as well as the potential for excellent theatrical realisation. A must for your collection, and at this price, with over fifty pages of notes, there isnt a better time to add it.

A piece of history but only for native hiberno English speakers otherwise the language would be difficult to understand. It strikes a cord with many nationalities.

A well-produced and informative copy of the play, giving lots of background material. Helps the understanding of the play and its historical background.
