Summary
In the annals of Irish studies and theater history much has been written about the Abbey Theatre. This book sheds new light on that company's history, but also examines other groups with a range of political, religious, gender, and class perspectives that consciously used performance to promote ideas about nationalism and culture in Ireland at the turn of the last century. This interdisciplinary work details how different nationalist organizations with diverse political and artistic goals employed theater as an anticolonial tool. This is a compelling analysis of these and other groups' prominent role in Irish nationalism in the years before Easter 1916, and the way these political theaters gave birth to modern Irish drama. -- Publishers description
