King of the Castle
Thirty years after it was first produced and won The Irish Life Award of the Dublin Theatre Festival, King of the Castle retains its awful force. 'Scober' MacAdam is the king. He has acquired by greed and exploitation a former 'Big House' in Co. Leitrim. But he is sexually impotent. Goaded by gossip, he devises a plot to impregnate his young wife. The latent savagery of McCabe's domestic tragedy discloses in the couple's struggle to converse a series of wounds in the household and in the neighboring community.
