Book Summary:

This book discusses Irish Passion plays (plays that rewrite or parody the story of the Passion of Christ) in modern Irish drama from the Irish Literary Revival to the present day. It offers innovative readings of such canonical plays as J. M. Synge’s The Playboy of the Western World, W. B. Yeats’s Calvary, Brendan Behan’s The Hostage, Samuel Beckett’s Endgame, Brian Friel’s Faith Healer and Tom Murphy’s Bailegangaire, as well as of less well-known plays by Padraic Pearse, Lady Gregory, G. B. Shaw, Seán O’Casey, Denis Johnston, Samuel Beckett and David Lloyd. Challenging revisionist readings of the rhetoric of “blood sacrifice” and martyrdom in the Irish Republican tradition, it argues that the Passion play is a powerful political genre which centres on the staged death of the (usually male) protagonist, and makes visible the usually invisible violence perpetrated both by colonial power and by the postcolonial state in the name of modernity.

Book Summary:

HEROIN by Grace Dyas, Trade by Mark O'Halloran, The Art of Swimming by Lynda Radley, Pineapple by Phillip McMahon, I ? Alice ? I by Amy Conroy, The Big Deal edited by Una McKevitt, Oedipus Loves You by Simon Doyle & Gavin Quinn, The Year of Magical Wanking by Neil Watkins Edited and introduced by Thomas Conway This anthology comprises eight new plays by Irish playwrights premièred between the years 2006 and 2011. These playwrights ride, however, in no slipstream of the identifiably Irish play. Here, the enterprise of playwriting itself is being re-imagined. Here, above all else, is a commitment to becoming in the theatre. For all that, each play is concerned with what is unfinished business in Ireland. How astonishing, then, that these plays should revolve for the most part around identity and, in particular, sexual identity. How identity comes into play, how we open up the field of play, how we raise into collective experience the exercise of that play – the urgency in the playwriting would appear to lie precisely here. We can read from the historical moment – from a narrative emphasizing an economic bubble and its hangover – into these plays. Or we can take these playwrights at their word and observe lives lived at the contour of identities in the making. It is for us as readers, just as we have as theatre-goers – frequently scandalized, enthralled, shamed, appalled, unburdened, tickled pink – to decide.

Book Summary:

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 2,0, Otto-von-Guericke-Universitat Magdeburg (Institut fur Fremdsprachliche Philologien), Veranstaltung: Literature - Contemporary Irish Drama, 30 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Wie im vergangenen Literatur-Hauptseminar zur Umwandlung, Geschichte und Reformation der irischen Dramen deutlich wurde, hat es gerade im Verlauf der letzten Jahrzehnte eine Revolution im Denken und Wirken irischer Theater-Autoren (und dementsprechend in der Popularitat ihrer Stucke) gegeben, die diese in noch starkerem Masse mit einer eigenen irischen Identitat ausstatteten und in ihrer Vielfalt sowie der Symbolhaftigkeit eine neue, modernere Epoche des irischen Dramas gepragt haben. Von besonderer Signifikanz war diese Entwicklung insbesondere deshalb, da dies auch in engem Zusammenhang mit Irlands Kolonisationshintergrund, seiner Unabhangigkeitsbestrebungen und dem Wunsch vieler Iren nach kultureller Eigenstandigkeit, innenpolitischer Unruhen, aber auch dem wirtschaftlichem Ab - und Wiederaufstieg begrundet liegt und erklart werden muss. Denn dies ist es letztlich, was das irische Theater ausmacht - die Frage bzw. Hinterfragung irischer Identitat und ihre Verarbeitung in der Dramenkultur Irlands: Ever since Lord Mountjoy and Neale Moore watched Goroduc in Dublin Castle in the months before the Battle of Kinsale in 1601, Irish audience have brought into the theatre a concern with what it means to be Irish (or to be in Ireland, which is not necessarily the same thing)." Doch gerade ruckblickend auf die Theatergeschichte der vergangenen Jahrhunderte galt es fur die Autoren der Dramen den Spagat zwischen den vorherrschenden Definitionen irischer Kultur, der Geschichte Irlands und der eigenen kreativen Freiheit zu finden, was sich nicht immer einfach gestaltete. Dies lasst sich in erster Linie durch eine fehlende Dramen- und Theaterkultur erklaren, die erst durch die britische Kolon
