About the author (1968)

Brian Friel was born Bernard Patrick Friel in 1929 in Northern Ireland. The future playwright attended St. Columb's College and graduated from St. Patrick's College. He spent a decade working as a teacher in Londonderry after deciding that he did not want to become a priest. Friel gained confidence as a writer when his short stories began to be published in the New Yorker magazine. He has produced several volumes of short stories, including A Saucer of Larks, The Gold in the Sea, and Give Me Your Answer, Do! But Friel is better known for writing plays. His first play, Philadelphia, Here I Come! is about an Irish immigrant who comes to America. His 1989 play Aristocrats won Best Foreign Play Award from the New York Drama Critics Circle. Dancing at Lughnasa, about a household of women in Ireland during the 1930s, won a Tony Award for best play in 1992. Other plays include Faith Healer, Molly Sweeney, and Wonderful Tennessee.
