Locked Out: Working-Class Lives in Irish Drama 1958-1998

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter surveys trends in the representation of working-class dramatis personae on Ireland's stages, in the latter part of the twentieth century. It also considers the representation of working-class dramatists in critical discourse. Social class is framed in relation to mutations in Independent Ireland's political economy, during the period. By using a reverse chronology, the chapter exposes, in particular, paths not taken in relation to the representation of women in dramatic narrative.
