The Lieutenant Of Inishmore

by Martin McDonagh, release date 2014-09-22, The Lieutenant Of Inishmore Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Lieutenant Of Inishmore books, 'There's more than one way to skin a theatrical cat; and McDonagh's chosen weapons are laughter and gore... Pushing theatre to its limits, McDonagh is making a serious point... a work as subversive as those Synge and O'Casey plays that sparked Dublin riots in the last century' Guardian 'A brave satire... Swiftianly savage and parodic... with explicit brutal actino and lines which sing with grace and wit' Observer Who knocked Mad Padraic's cat over on a lonely road on the island of Inishmore and was it an accident? He'll want to know when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland: he loves his cat more than life itself. The Lieutenant of Inishmore is a brilliant satire on terrorism, a powerful corrective to the beautification of violence in contemporary culture, and a hilarious farce. It premiered at the RSC's The Other Place, Stratford-upon-Avon, in May 2001. Commentary and notes by Patrick Lonergan

Martin Mcdonagh S The Lieutenant Of Inishmore

by Brian James Stone, release date 2008, Martin Mcdonagh S The Lieutenant Of Inishmore Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Martin Mcdonagh S The Lieutenant Of Inishmore books, Since the opening of Martin McDonagh's The Lieutenant of Inishmore at London's The Other Place in April of 2001, there has been little critical agreement as to how this play should be read. There seems to be a problematic discourse surrounding this apparently "Irish" play written by a playwright who is difficult to identify by way of nationality. McDonagh has successfully divided the world of Irish theatre criticism into those who believe his play perpetuates Irish stereotypes, those who believe it subverts them and those who believe the play's dark, satirical form and content provides us with no significant literary contributions what so ever. By looking at critical responses to McDonagh's play as well as audience responses in a global context, we see that "Irishness" becomes something to be of less concern. Moreover, by looking at McDonagh's treatment of the impulse to identity in "Irish" literature, we can come to see McDonagh's place in Irish literature; which may not be "in" Irish literature at all, but in postmodern literature. The intertextual nature of the play can be taxonomized as that which Fredric Jameson calls pastiche, that is, the emergence of cannibalized stylistic forms in the space of the text. These traces no longer have meaning for us as we are unable to come to understand, in this era of late capitalism, Jameson tells us, not only an authentic history, but an authentic present as well. The allusions to historical events and to other works of literature emerge in such a way that we cannot take them seriously or identify with them at all. Seeing McDonagh's work in this light, as being postmodern and not "Irish," whatever that means, brings us to see that identification by nationality is inadequate, but more importantly, that it is impossible.

Political Acts

by Fiona Coleman Coffey, release date 2016-12-09, Political Acts Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Political Acts books, Since the establishment of the Northern Irish state in 1921, theatre has often captured and reflected the political, social, and cultural changes that the North has experienced. From the mid–twentieth century, theatre has played a particularly important role in documenting women’s experiences and in showing how women’s social and political status has changed with the transformation of the state. Throughout the North’s history, women’s dramatic writing and performance have often contradicted mainstream narratives of the sectarian conflict, creating a rich and daring trove of counternarratives that contest the stories promoted by the government and media. Moving beyond the better-known women theatre practitioners of the North such as Marie Jones, Christina Reid, Anne Devlin, and the Charabanc Theatre Company, Coffey recovers the lost history of lesser-known, early playwrights and highlights a new generation of women writing during peacetime. She examines how Northern women have historically used the theatrical stage as a form of political activism when more traditional avenues were closed off to them. Tracing the development of women’s involvement in Northern theatre, Coffey ultimately illuminates how issues such as feminism, gender roles, violence, politics, and sectarianism have shifted over the past century as the North moves from conflict into a developing and fragile peace.

Cultural Perspectives On Globalisation And Ireland

by Eamon Maher, release date 2009, Cultural Perspectives On Globalisation And Ireland Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Cultural Perspectives On Globalisation And Ireland books, In the space of a few short decades, Ireland has become one of the most globalised societies in the Western world. The full ramifications of this transformation for traditional Irish communities, religious practice, economic activity, as well as literature and the arts, are as yet unknown. What is known is that Ireland's largely unthinking embrace of globalisation has at times had negative consequences. Unlike some other European countries, Ireland has eagerly and sometimes recklessly grasped the opportunities for material advancement afforded by the global project. This collection of essays, largely the fruit of two workshops organised under the auspices of the Humanities Institute of Ireland at University College Dublin and the National Centre for Franco-Irish Studies in the Institute of Technology, Tallaght, explores how globalisation has taken such a firm hold on Irish society and provides a cultural perspective on the phenomenon. The book is divided into two sections. The first examines various manifestations of globalisation in Irish society whereas the second focuses on literary representations of globalisation. The contributors, acknowledged experts in the areas of cultural theory, religion, sociology and literature, offer a panoply of viewpoints of Ireland's interaction with globalisation.

Theatre And Violence

by John W. Frick, release date 1999, Theatre And Violence Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Theatre And Violence books, In this volume, some contributors explore violence as an integral element in both dramatic texts and performance throughout the history of the theatre, from Roman blood spectacles to contemporary representations of incest and child sexual abuse. Other contributors, members of the Society of American Fight Directors, examine the various facets of the actual staging of violence, such as orchestrating sound and recreating Shakespearean swordplay. A final group analyzes examples of theatrical violence at the fringes of social acceptability, as seen in the work of Martin McDonagh and Mark Ravenhill.Together, these articles put stage violence in perspective and help students of theatre better understand the nature -- and consequences -- of what they often represent.
