Plays of the 70s, Volume 3
Currency Press, 2001 - Australia - 211 pages
In this volume, covering 1975--1977, years of consolidation for some, disappointment for others, the authors take stock of the progress of reform. In 'Crossfires', a critique of feminism; in 'The Christian Brothers' a satire of Catholic education; in 'A Happy and Holy Occasion', a portrait of Irish obsequiousness and superstition; and 'Inner Voices', allegory of the ignorant in power, the plays express their writers' disillusion with the past and impatience for reconsideration.
