Example text

I wouldn't have behaved like that fool-girl in the play, The Big House. " In the earlier play, Robinson stressed the need for the Anglo-Irish to preserve their immiscible identity. Here, Judith marries below her class, and Robinson is saying that the old distinctions are meaningless and are quickly being extinguished. He spends much of the play attacking the Anglo-Irish culture which he personifies by "the de Lury charm," an enervating quality that keeps a man from accomplishment and makes him fribble away his time in the feckless occupations of a leisured class.

The Hostage, because of its "daring," is in little danger of being performed at the Abbey, but some attempt might have been made to secure Behan's three charming one-acts which John Molloy excellently did at the Gate. The theatre has rejected work of one of the best dramatists since Behan, John B. Keane. 3 THE REALISTIC DRAMA OF THE ABBEY after Sive had become one of the most produced plays in Ireland and after half a dozen other Keane plays had been staged throughout Ireland, as well as in England and the United States.

He became an important drama critic for The Observer, and later spent a year as an astringent guest critic on a New York paper. His John Ferguson and Jane Clegg were the financial saving of the New York Theatre Guild. In more recent years he has written a number of comedies for the British stage somewhat in the style of Somerset Maugham. He also published some novels, as well as highly opinionated biographies of Parnell, General William Booth, Craigavon, Wilde, and Shaw. His first post-O'Casey comedy at the Abbey was Eoyd's Shop, produced on February 24, 1936, and later filmed with the Abbey players.
