Overview

Irish theatre in England has frequently illustrated the complex relations between


two distinct cultures. How English reviewers and audiences interpret Irish plays is often decidedly


different from how the plays were read in performance in Ireland. How certain Irish performers have


chosen to be understood in Dublin is not necessarily how audiences in London have perceived their


constructed stage personae. Though a collection by diverse authors, the twelve essays in this volume


investigate these issues from a variety of perspectives that together chart the trajectory of


Irish performance in England from the mid-nineteenth century till today.
