JUST SAW THE PLAY March 14 1999
By Victor Bloom MD - Published on
Format: Paperback
It is a wild, woolly, farcical, slapstick, poetic-philosophical comedy, which deserves a reading, as the Irish accents can be largely non-understandable. The play had the feel of a classic, although it helps to know the times and the Irish reaction to it, historically.
Historically Significant Literary Bust July 8 2013
By Frank P. DiPrima - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
While the play is of historical significance (riots at the Abbey Theater in Dublin in 1907) this is a childish comedy, at best mildly amusing. At its best it lends itself well to slapstick exaggerations of the Irish character. It is more like Brendan Behan five decades later than like the estimable Irish playwrights like Wilde or Shaw or O'Casey or even the Joyce of "Exiles."
