Tarry Flynn: a play in three acts based on the novel by Patrick Kavanagh

Front Cover
Gallery Books, 2004 - Drama - 101 pages
Peter Fallon enjoys a special intimacy with the world that Patrick Kavanagh's novel delineates. Most of his life he has lived not far from Dargan and Drumnay. Now he dramatizes Kavanagh's portrait of a mother and her children, including her only son, on whom she dotes and who is prone to rhapsodic flights and insights. Tarry Flynn examines the great hungers of a society with a stifled need not only to be loved, but also to love. As the hero, Tarry, struggles to find his right place in the world, we wonder if the appearance of a reprobate uncle could offer a chance of salvation from his fate.
