Talking about Tom Murphy
Murphy's long and distinguished career can rival any of Ireland's playwrights. Less known outside Ireland than an O'Casey, Friel, or McPherson, his accomplished plays asks hard questions and deliver hard answers. This book assembles some of the best-known commentators on his work. They reveal not only the Irish but the European dimensions of Murphy's work. Some of the plays singled out for special examination are The Sanctuary Lamp, The Gigli Concert, and Bailegangaire. Illustrated with photos from the plays and an interview.
