Marina Carr Plays by Marina Carr
Book DescriptionThe first collection of plays by Marina Carr introduces the work of a major new voice in playwriting. Love in the Dark - "One of the most exciting, new and absolutely original aspects of Carr's writing is the manner in which the sexism of the language and religious imagery is exposed...Marina Carr is a playwright to be watched."(Sunday Tribune). The Mai - "The writing is at once gentle and raucous...capable of articulating deep-seated woes and resentments in a manner you rarely find outside Eugene O'Neill." (Observer). Portia Coughlan - "A play of precocious maturity and accomplishment." (Irish Times). "Portia Coughlan packs a hell of a punch. It hurts to look at it. But it has to be seen." (Irish Independent). By the Bog of Cats..."A poetic realism steeped in the past...Carr has an extraordinary ability to move between the mythic and the real." (Guardian). "A great play...a great work of poetry...the word should soon carry across both sides of the Atlantic." (Independent).
