'What makes this book a stimulating and enlightening read is how thoroughly many of the individual authors combine the goals of both uncovering and interrogating plays by and images of women, and placing these in their cultural contexts for the purposes of the book's sustained critique of patriarchal structures... [an] important volume.'
- Karen Fricker, Contemporary Theatre Review
'... the book addresses a longstanding critical blind spot, includes a helpful appendix of Irish women playwrights dating from 1663, and points the way forward to a number of fruitful areas for future research.'
- Theatre Research International
'This volume undoubtedly fulfils its declared intent of widening the debate concerning the representation of women on the Irish stage... Its most striking achievement is the exposure of little-known work by female playwrights and the appended directory is an inspired move which provides an invaluable resource.'
- Margaret Maxwell, Journal of Irish and Scottish Studies
Featuring original essays by leading scholars, this book, now available in paperback, explores the immense legacy of women playwrights in Irish theatre since the start of the twentieth centurySee all Product description
